Super-luxury cheese and duck confit toasted sandwich

This is a simple lunch made luxurious through the use of two rich and luscious French ingredients: duck confit and Morbier cheese.

Morbier is a semi-soft, slightly elastic cheese which is made in the village of Morbier, in the Jura mountains, leading towards the Swiss alps. A distinctive layer of ash runs through the middle of it, and it has a wonderful nutty flavour. You can get a very similar cheese in the UK, called Ashcombe

This sandwich is not for the faint-hearted; it’s for the very robust-hearted, and for people who have just taken a lot of exercise and are ravenous – keen skiers for example. For lesser mortals you might want to present this as an open sandwich – same amount of filling, but half the bread.

The endive salad cuts through this mountain of copious riches, with a vinaigrette of cranberry and rosemary maybe. An alternative salad would be a rocket salad dressed with raspberry vinegar and walnut dressing.
