COMM: At the exclusive Serendipity 3 restaurant in New York, big cheese chef Joe Calderone
has created the world’s most expensive sandwich. 00:25
JOE: We came up with the idea to create the world’s most expensive sandwich on National
Sandwich day and we decided on grilled cheese because that is the ultimate comfort food
and what better way to celebrate that sandwich is to make the quintessential version of that
sandwich. 00:43

its doors from Marilyn Monroe and Grace Kelly to Beyonce and Jay Z so its no surprise the
Quintessential Grilled Cheese Sandwich has a VIP price tag to match, a whopping $214.00. 01:03
JOE: We sourced the ingredients by looking for the finest and rarest ingredients in the
world and we try to put them together where the taste will work and would create an ultimate
experience in dining. 01:17
JOE: Now this bread is baked with Dom Perignon champagne, some white truffle oil with the
gold, our grass-fed butter infused with white truffles and we are going to take our Caciocavallo
Podolico cheese now this cheese is a very rare cheese, it smells really good. I think
we are ready, yeah there we go. 01:42
COMM: But Joe is not done yet. 01:43
