Any time we see a cookbook devoted to the fine art of grilled cheese, we get very excited. British author Fern Green takes a deep-dive into one of the most sought-after comfort foods we've ever known, with variations from vegetarian and fruit-adorned to the wonderfully meaty and everything in between.

This spiced stilton, cheddar and kimchi melt is not for the faint-hearted, but if you are willing to try it you are bound to love it!

Prep Time
Cook Time
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 slices white sourdough bread
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha
  • 1/4 cup grated mature Cheddar
  • 1 ounce Stilton or other blue cheese
  • 2 1/2 ounces kimchi
  • 1/2 spring onion
  1. Spread the butter onto one side of both slices of bread and place them butter-side down on a plate. Drizzle the sriracha over one slice, then layer on the Cheddar, Stilton, kimchi and spring onion. Top with the second slice of bread, butter side face up.
  2. Heat a griddle pan or heavy-based frying pan (skillet) over a medium heat. Lay the sandwich in the pan and press down with a spatula. Cook for 3 minutes, then flip over and cook for a further 3 minutes or until the outside is golden and the cheese has melted.
  3. Alternatively, cook the sandwich in a toasted sandwich maker or a panini press. Slice in half and serve.
