The only thing better than a beautifully bronzed melty oozy cheesy toasted sandwich is four beautifully bronzed melty oozy cheesy toasted sandwiches.
Competing for the Iron Toastie Award, four distinguished sarnie makers will vie for your vote in the battle of the big cheeses:
- William Oglethorpe of Kappacasein Dairy. He’ll prepare the famous Borough Market toasted cheese sandwich many regard as the best sandwich in London.
- Tim Kershaw of Mishkin’s, the kind of Jewish deli with cocktails. From the great Covent Garden showcase for the classic Reuben sandwich will come a purpose-built Reuben melt.
- Joanna Brennan of Pump Street Bakery in Orford, Suffolk, recently named Best Food Producer at the 2012 BBC Radio 4 Food & Farming Awards. She’ll press out a truffled cheese sourdough toastie on her signature bread.
- Fred Smith of Fred’s, winner of Golden Patty Award for best burger at the BurgerMonday London Burger Bash. In a variation on the burger theme he’ll turn out a patty melt.
