The Blue Scotsman
The winning sandwich, containing Brodick Blue cheese – a delicious Scottish blue cheese made from ewe's milk – topped with two slices of Ayrshire dry cured bacon and red onion relish was created by Rudy Roversi , 38, from Gourock, Scotland. Rudy comments, "I absolutely love this sandwich as it draws on my passion for regional produce, with two locally sourced ingredients that work really well together – I’ve been making it for years for my family and friends so I’m over the moon that The Blue Scotsman has captured the imagination of the nation and been crowned the Ultimate British Sandwich for the rest of the nation to enjoy."
Speaking about the search and winning sandwich Jodie said, "Sandwiches are one of life's little pleasures and the search for the Ultimate British Sandwich has shown that Brits are sandwich mad with everyone having their own preferences, quirks and opinions on how to prepare the ultimate lunchtime treat. It's amazing how many different varieties of sandwiches us Brits consume – I'd never even think to put together some of the fillings combinations!"
Hovis has this month launched its new premium British Farmers Loaf, made in conjunction with two of the bread brand’s network of 450 British wheat farmers, to give that ultimate ‘home-baked’ taste and rustic feel to the farmhouse loaf and we hope the ultimate sandwich. The new Hovis British Farmers Loaf is available in both White and Wholemeal varieties and baked with Britain’s best wheat, in Hovis embossed tins to form the traditional overhang shape and time-honoured muffin top. The finishing touch is a dusting of fresh flour to bring a unique artisan and home-baked feel to the loaf.
