Cheese on toast is a snack consisting of, as the name implies, cheese and toast. Butter and creative use of seasonings and toppings make the variations of this simple snack almost limitless. As Chef Tom Bridge demonstrated in 2006, the price for cheese on toast can be equally limitless.
Bridge’s Welsh Rarebit is a slice of Warburtons Toastie bread topped with creamy Lancashire cheese, chosen for its unique melting consistency, as well as L’Aquila white Umbrian truffles and Matsutake Chinese mushrooms. Considering the high price of both the truffles and the mushrooms, the dish cost a grand total of £345 (about US $609 at the time) to create.
Chef Bridge auctioned the most expensive cheese on toast in the world on eBay on April 27, 2006. The winner was treated to the Welsh Rarebit made by Chef Bridge in their own kitchen.
