meltin grilled cheese: mouthwatering artisan cheese sandwiches in the midlands.


Melted grilled cheese oozing between a couple of slices of great quality bread. Sounds good, right? It's almost impossible to say no to a cheese toastie. Switch up the flavours, create some delicious combinations that complement a whole host of cheese varieties... and that's what Meltin Grilled Cheese do.


Based in the East Midlands, Meltin are touring the counties in their rice truck, one grilled cheese sandwich at a time. I went along to their recent Derbyshire launch, to same the latest flavour combinations as well as their heavenly mobile raclette grill. For the purposes of reviewing, of course.







Founded by Leicestershire based couple Sophie and Paul, the fantastic team came up with some awesome grilled cheese toastie flavours to kick off their new adventure. Think goat's cheese with spinach and candied walnuts, local Colston Bassett Blue Stilton with smoked bacon and leeks and Manchego with chorizo and quince jelly.


The raclette in particular was an absolute dream. Usually found on ski resorts, this gooey melted cheese is served with crispy new potatoes and crunchy pickles. A great gluten free alternative to the sandwiches, but a must-try for all.


With some exciting public events lined up for 2017, Meltin are also available to hire at private functions with a menu tailored to the occasion. I mean, everyone loves cheese toasties. You can't really go wrong!


As well as the Manchego and goat's cheese flavours, I thoroughly enjoyed the Sparkenhoe Red Leicester with spring onions and leeks. I loved that this toastie embraced a local Leicestershire cheese, sandwiched between bread from Smithards Bakery in Ashby de la Zouch.


Hungry yet? You can next find the Meltin crew and their rather lovely horse box at the Derbyshire Food and Drink Fair at National Trust's Kedleston Hall on May 13th and 14th. Make sure you head over and like their Facebook page and Instagram for updated on their cheese related whereabouts!
