Growing up, I consumed an ungodly amount of grilled cheese sandwiches. So when I first heard that there was a British version of the classic grilled cheese sandwich I was certainlyintrigued. The issue was that outside of the internet I had no personal experience with the British version so I set out to sample the Welsh Rarebit in person!
In this episode of the sandwich series, join me as I venture out to the West Village in NYC where the British restaurant called Tea & Symphony is located. There I meet the owner Nicky Perry, who is a true brit with a spunky personality standing up for her country's cuisine. She personally makes me her famous Welsh Rarebit Sandwich and gives me a couple of her tips and tricks to really make this sandwich stand out against the crowd.
Fully loaded with the best tips and a delicious welsh rarebit sandwich, I head back to my home kitchen to make my own sandwich from scratch in true Pro Home Cooks style. I used the sandwich bread recipe inThe Ultimate Bread Baking Handbookas the base to hold all the delicious toppings. Once accomplished and satisfied, I put this welsh rarebit sandwich to compete against the all american grilled cheese sandwich.
