Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Silverton instituted many of these lighter menu recipes at her Los Angeles eatery, Campanile, the 2001 winner of the James Beard Award for Best Restaurant. The baker and proprietor of La Brea Bakery, as well as co-owner of Campanile, collaborated with Teri Gelber on this collection. While Silverton offers new takes on such standards as the grilled cheese sandwich, she does satisfy those craving a less traditional and more innovative experience. Her open-faced sandwich combinations include Asparagus, Poached Egg, Prosciutto and Fontina Cheese; Bacon, Avocado and Watercress; and Piled-High Pork. Served closed face are the Monte Cristo; Fried Oyster Sandwich; and Ham, Creamed Spinach, and Stewed Leeks. Sandwich sweets (such as the Carrot Cake Club Sandwich or Blum's Sandwich Cake) and an assortment of tea sandwiches and finger foods round out the menu. Separate sections on spreads, condiments, and breads are accompanied by a list of suppliers. 41 full-color photos.

From Booklist

Who doesn't subsist on the sandwich? Whether made at home or purchased at a fast-food outlet, it's the quintessential American lunchtime repast. Nancy Silverton's Sandwich Book gives dozens of sophisticated and unusual ideas for sandwiches that transcend the ordinary. Silverton, owner of Los Angeles' La Brea Bakery, recognizes how important good bread is as the foundation of a sandwich. First come open-faced sandwiches ranging from simple grilled garlic bread to a festal combination of rare tuna, braised leeks, hard-boiled egg, and olives topped with garlic mayonnaise. She re-creates the retro Monte Cristo sandwich, a deep-fried version of French toast layered with ham and turkey. Silverton avoids prepared ingredients, preferring even to roast her own pork. For dessert, she invents "club sandwiches," triple layers of cake, filling, and frosting. Silverton's juxtapositions of ingredients should inspire readers to create their own unique sandwich medleys. Bread recipes include buttery brioche and classic hot dog buns. Mark Knoblauch

I love cooking, in a real serious aficionado kind of way. A few months ago, I became obsessed with sandwiches and I bought this book . At first when I got it, I started reading it and became a little "are you out of your mind" but then decided to give it a chance. I made the Fried oyster sandwiches, the monte cristo, the remoulade sauce and bagna cauda (relatively easy recipes) and WOW, I was hooked. I guess my problem at first was that I supposed I was buying a Subway or Quizons do it at home book but was I wrong. These sandwiches are top of the notch gourmet food for a refined and balanced eating experience. Atention to detail is essential and most of the recipes require a lot of pre preparation beforehand for the final assembly (culprit to my initial drawback). The desserts are dazzling (I tried the Not Nutterbutter cookies and the Blums Crunch cake) and I hold this book now amongst my most treasured ones. If you love fine food, don't mind slaving a little for a worth while dazzling finale, buy this book, it will change your outlook on sandwiches forever.........

While many of the recipes in this book are just too elaborate for me to try, I still enjoyed reading them. And the photos were works of art in themselves. As the book description says, these are recipes for gourmet meals that just happen to be served on bread!
The author divides the sandwich recipes into open-faced, closed face, sort-of sandwiches, tea sandwiches, and several other categories.
I am especially interested in trying the Pan Bagna, the Peppered Beef with Sauteed Greens and Caper Onion Mayonnaise, and the sandwich made with asparagus, poached eggs, prosciutto and fontina cheese.
The Grilled Autostrada sandwich was yummy (four cured meats, peppers and provolone) as were several of the grilled sandwiches.
The book also contains interesting food background information and some useful tips for adapting the recipes.

I have been going to Thursday Nights at Campanile for as long as Nancy has been behind the bar cooking up her delicious sandwiches. It is the same dedication that forces her to show up and grill after just stepping off a plane from Bangkok that makes this book so wonderful. The recipes are magnificently constructed with a clock-makers precision and a bakers intuition. Not only would I recommend this book to every cook, but I would buy it for every friend.

I don't think I'll ever make a "white bread" sandwich ever again! These recipes are time-consuming, but easy. They are also not your average ingredients that one may just pluck out of the cupboard or the fridge. This is a great book, but if you're going to make one of these yummy dishes, you gotta take a list to the supermarket or better yet, the local farm stand. I'm from Long Island, so we don't have all the fresh fruits and veggies that California does, but that doesn't mean you can't make these deliciously. In addition, the author also gives us several oils, spread, etc., that are out of this world. Try the book, and kiss your old PBJ good riddance!

The author really gets it right. The trick to a good sandwich isn't a trick at all. When you have a food that has five ingredients, every one of them needs to be very good, and very fresh. The recipes in the book are simple and delicious. I especially like the trick of making the grilled cheese sandwich, then opening it after it is finished cooking and slipping in a cool slice of tomato. Fantastic!

Good pictures, too!

I picked up this book because I have baked from Nancy's La Brea Bread Book before and I love her attention to detail. But what sold me was the recipe that the book fell open to:
"Not Nutter Butters". When I read that this was her take on a Girl Scout Cookie that the entire family loves, I just had to check it out.
The cookie was everything I hoped for and even more work than I expected. But worth every hour of it. Now onto "Almost Oreos" for the chocolate lovers in the clan.
Oh, and the sandwiches....simply amazing! Nancy has done it again.

firstly, i want to say that Nancy Silverton is a brillant baker. this book is not for people looking for quick sandwich ideas. i mean, why bother buying a book of sandwich ideas that aren't special? rather, it's a book that attempts to introduce impressive sandwiches to the menu designed to impress, and to inspire the reader to try different flavour combinations in a friendly but tired vehicle like a sandwich.

anyway, i wanted to mention that a review above roasts Ms. Silverton for supposedly not knowing what a croque madame is but the reviewer was grossly misinformed. a croque madame does traditionally include a fried egg, not chicken. in america and the UK, for whatever reasons, the traditional croque madame has transformed in a croque monsieur with chicken instead of ham, but, according to the Larousse Gastronomique, Ms. Silverton was 100% correct. which makes that review incorrect, in addition to being petty and snotty.

I just got this book today, and I think it is just superb. I didn't get a chance to look through it thoroughly, but I am already excited just by looking at some of the pictures. They all look so scrumptous. I am really looking forward to this one in particular with "Ham & Creamed Spinach & Leeks". I'm quite inspired by Nancy Silverston's introduction. She explains how she got so into sandwiches when she visited Italy. Just know one thing, this is not a typical sandwich book. I would describe it as high-end, gourmet, and highly likeable by all kind of book. The book is hardcovered, and it seems too pretty for me to bring in my kitchen with me. I am going to try to make at least 1 sandwich every 1-2 weekends. (I'm a busy gal) Great buy for it's price! I suggest you buy if you are interested in investing in a classy, well put together recipe book, not to mention, beautiful pictures. I just love it!!!
