I had a lot of fun foraging my foodie way through TravelSupermarket’s International Street Food Challenge a couple of weeks ago in Shoreditch. The free event offered guests the chance to sample a variety of authentic and delicious dishes cooked by a variety of vendors from around the world. Most of the traders on hand were from London. However, flown in all the way from Copenhagen was the popular duo of Frenchy gourmand maestros: Copper and Wheat.
Never having tried Copper and Wheat’s food before but having heard the hype (and bing intrigued that the organisers would find it necessary to import traders at all for a street food happening in London), I was keen to eat what they were serving. The duck fat frites were amazing, and the croque monsieur was among the best I’ve had.
Confident and open, Copper and Wheat made their recipe for croque monsieur au comté available to any and all. I gave it a go a few days later at home. It’s pretty easy to prepare (as long as you get the béchamel right). Comté seems a brilliant choice for an especially rich nutty flavour too.
Check out my previous post about another tasty treat I savoured at the Challenge and then attempted for make for myself back home: Orange Buffalo’s hot wings with blue cheese dip.
