Between the slices
on November 8, 2012
There are some amazing sandwiches in this book for those who are sandwich lovers or just desire some really good and different sandwich recipes. The pictures are mouthwatering, not all sandwiches have their own picture however. Included are; kicked-up classics, lunch box sandwiches that travel, on a roll, subs, pressed and grilled, open-face, wraps, breakfast and brunch, sweet sandwiches, bread, dressings.
There is a good introduction with advice on making good sandwiches. Some of the sandwiches that he says are for travel, I would hesitate to leave unrefrigerated and he gives no advice on how long they can `travel' and still be okay, especially an egg salad sandwich.
Personally many of these recipes require more work than I care to commit to a sandwich; but if you wish to impress or enjoy a more complicated sandwich then this book is for you. The recipes are not that hard, just at points require a lot of ingredients and preparation and that is without making your own bread or the sauces - both of which have excellent recipes.
We have enjoyed sandwich Nicoise, eggplant muffuletta, New Orleans-style olive salad, smoked sausage sandwiches with beer braised onions was a particular favorite, crab Louie sandwich, cheddar and green onion biscuits, and chocolate wafers with peanut butter fudge.
It is a nice book to add to your cookbook collection, especially if you are a sandwich lover.
