A cheese show in Somerset is hoping to set the record for the world's most expensive cheese sandwich.

The Frome Cheese Show claims to be the oldest in the country. And organisers hope its cheese sandwich, costing £110.59, is the world's most expensive.

It was created by Bath-based chef Martin Blunos and is made with cheddar blended with white truffles and sprinkled with gold dust.

There is no current official record for the most expensive cheese sandwich.

Mr Blunos said: "We Brits are known to love our cheese sandwiches and here's one that is fit for the banqueting table.

"The white truffle fuses beautifully with the West Country cheddar and the edible gold gives it a really special look.

"Washed down with a bottle of Krug what more could you want? - although I can't recommend you share it with your bank manager."

Mr Blunos has applied to Guinness World Records to have the sandwich recognised.

The current record for the world's most expensive commercially available sandwich is held by the Cliveden Hotel in Berkshire.

It is made from ham rather than cheese and costs £100.
