While Sky's first book is centered on the sandwich, it certainly goes beyond the humble expectations that might imply; dedicated to elevating the sandwich to an art form, Sky has filled her book with fun facts and nutritional advice along with tasty recipes for sandwich-centered meals that aren't necessarily fit for the novice cook. Sandwiches are built from the ground up-starting with appealing and unusual recipes for bread which might leave beginners frustrated.Sky doesn't waste time on the basics before presenting her unabashedly refined recipe for white bread-calling for half and half as well as powdered sugar-and a range of whole grain breads that cover wheat, rye and oat. Then she adds combinations of sauces and fillings. Sky divides her time between the adventuresome (Roasted Rumble Bumble with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce on Honey-Nut Wheat Bread) and the traditional (Reuben with Reuben Sauce on Herbed Rye Bread), with a number of intriguing combinations that split the difference (Red Deviled Egg Salad Sandwich on Spicy White Pepper-Jack Bread). Rounded out by sections on salads, soups and sides, and complemented by beautiful portraits of finished foods, this is a wonderful multi-purpose cookbook for those who like even their sandwiches prepared with thought and care-no Dagwoods need apply.
