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

You will find this in the YA or the Juvenile section but don't let that keep you from reading it. If I could give it 10 stars I would. This National Book Award Winner is one of the best near future sci-fi thriller novels written in the past few years. Early in the novel, Matt discovers he is a clone in a future where clones are thought of as little more than animals. Matt is the clone of a very powerful drug lord, and because of this, he enjoys a much more comfortable life than most. Matt learns a lot in the course of the novel...perhaps the most frightening of these is that there are many reasons for cloning one's self. I hear a lot of people review books and say things like "a page turner" and "you won't want to put it down." I read a lot and usually don't have too much trouble putting a book down if something else catches my eye or if it's late at night. This one kept me up until three a.m. This "Newbery Honor" is head and shoulders above the winner of the medal for 2003. (Crispin isn't even in the same league as this book). This is also head and shoulders above most SF books of 2003! Give it a look you won't be sorry!

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.

Format: Hardcover
May I gush for a moment about Nancy Farmer? Please bow, one and all, for the premiere sci-fi children's author of the day. The successor, to my mind, of Madeline L'Engle with a hint of Mildred Taylor for flair. She won me over initially with her extraordinary "The Ear, the Eye, and the Arm" and reeled me in completely with "House of the Scorpion". In this, her latest offering, the moral implications of cloning and the drug wars are brought to terrifying extremes. And yet who knew that organ farming could be so readable? The main character, Matteo, is followed from his very conception to the age of fourteen. The book does not, surprisingly, dwell too closely on the nature of existence and Matteo's own appearance on the globe. Instead, it chooses to simply lay out a world in which the drug lords of South America have created their own land and laws. The book abounds with interesting characters and ideas. Though I found it odd that member of the Alacran clan would openly despise their leader's clone before him, there are few missteps in this powerful novel. That it was a Newberry Honor Book impresses me especially. Some parents will undoubtedly find the depictions of violence that spot this book (and they do certainly crop up at regular intervals) too much for younger children, just as older kids will adore the gorier details. Like "The Ear, the Eye, and the Arm", this is a wordy tale. It is 380 pages in length and it feels it. And truthfully, the first false climax, when Matt escapes the land of Opium, seems as if it should be the end of the book, only to open up into a whole new story. I would be very interested to know if any teachers have read this book to their students. Just the same, consider this book highly recommended and Ms. Farmer a master of wordplay.

26 of 29 people found the following review helpful By Jessica Lux on October 12, 2005
Format: Paperback
This is YA fiction at its best: an epic story about life-changing events and human strength, appropriate for middle schoolers but totally readable for any teen or adult reader, and a book that can be enjoyed by male or female readers. The protagonist, Matteo, is male, but the story is universal and not to be missed by any literature fan. This is one of those books that can change a middle schooler from a non-reader to a reader.

The story unfolds gradually, as we learn about Matt and his life as a clone, a second-class citizen, growing up in the sprawling mansion of rich and powerful feudal drug lord El Patron, the man from whose DNA Matt was cloned. Matt is unsure of his place in the world, and he needs to learn about the inner workings of the household and its members, the robot-like people who farm opium, the politics of the land El Patron rules between the US and Mexico, as well as Matt's own purpose in life (why did El Patron make a clone? Is Matt his ultimate heir or is there a darker purpose?). The reader is along for Matt's journey of self-discovery, as he figures out who to trust and where the real truth lies. Along the way, Matt finds love as well as boyhood friendship and bonding.

There's an important lesson in here about the fate of those who grow up inside cults: When Matt figures out what is right and wrong in the world, will he be able to make the right choice and reject the powerful but evil man who brought him into this world? What if your hero is a kind man to you, but reviled by the rest of the world?

Another interesting aspect of the story is the way the future echoes the past.
