I'm somewhat notorious among friends for my love of cheese and bacon so I'm a man who appreciates a good cheese toastie (or grilled cheese sandwich). Kappacasein in Borough Market, London does some truly gorgeous cheese toasties and I've been visiting them for a few years now.

For a while, they opened up their small dairy near Maltby St Market (according to the website it's still open for a few hours on Saturdays) which is way harder to find but a nice little location tucked into an arch under a railway line. After a wander around Maltby St Market, sitting down for a great grilled cheese sandwich in the sun was very welcome and I took a couple of photos of the staff at work creating these tasty beasts.

I don't know this guy's name, but I assume he's one of the key staff as he was on the stall at Borough for quite a while before seemingly moving over to the dairy. Whenever I got a sandwich from him, you could tell care had gone into its making and it shows in the taste. I also love the confidence in their produce: they list all the ingredients on the boards so you can copy their recipe (which I have done a few times). £5 for a cheese sandwich seems pricey but with their own cheese and great bread you can really notice the difference.

If you're ever in the area, do check out Kappacasein at Borough Market (and also the French place at the other end of the market selling duck confit wraps and sandwiches!).
