1 tablespoon butter
30g leeks, thinly sliced
45g aged Cheddar, grated
30g Maasdam, grated
10g parmesan, grated
15g raclette grated
2 slices of 4&20 Bakery organic country sourdough (one- or two-day old is best) melted butter
80g champagne ham off the bone

Food has the power to comfort us, help us feel calm, looked after, loved and filled up, physically and emotionally. This sandwich, crafted on our organic sourdough oozing with a selection of cheeses and ham off the bone, was inspired by this poem but is decadent, delicious and very tasty. It has the power to nourish, fortify and strengthen us in the face of anything we may encounter – no grieving here!


1.Heat the butter in a frying pan and fry the leeks slowly with a pinch of salt, until soft.
2.Mix the cheeses together then mix in the cooked leeks.
3.Brush the slices of bread with melted butter.
4.Add ham, then spread over the cheese-andleek mixture.
5.Toast each sandwich in a preheated sandwich press for 4-5 minutes or until golden brown.
