Chef Jun Jun de Guzman says this sandwich is comfort food for him, ever since he invented it seven years ago in a gourmet sandwich class. All his 15 classmates enjoyed every bite! Though it’s gourmet, the four cheeses in the sandwich are readily available in leading supermarkets.

1 tablespoon butter
1/2 onion, sliced thinly
150 grams sliced fresh button mushrooms

2 Assemble the sandwich: Slice each foccacia into two pieces. Lay a slice of each of the cheeses and add bits of blue cheese and Bel Paese. Put fresh mushroom sauté on top and cover with the other foccacia slice.
3 Place assembled sandwich into a panini or sandwich grill and heat for 3 minutes. Serve warm.
