Description: Taste any one of the delicious sandwiches in this innovative cookbook, and your ideas about sandwiches will change forever. Why eat a boring cheese sandwich or the same old bologna on white when you can have blue cheese and pears on walnut bread, or prosciutto and artichoke hearts on focaccia?
Creative sandwich making is a simple art, easy to learn and fun to practice. Even a beginning cook can pack brown-bag lunches that are the highlight of the day, and spend no more time doing it than it takes to mix up a tuna salad or assemble the ingredients for a ham-and-cheese-on-rye.
With a bit more preparation, you can surprise your family with an impressive herbed omelette sandwich for supper or wow your guests with an array of Danish smorrebrod or open-face bruschetta with peaches and fresh orange-scented cheese.
In this, his eighth cookbook, chef and cooking teacher Jay Harlow offers sandwich lovers more than 60 tempting recipes, some based on classic sandwich combinations, some intriguingly original. Among his tasty inventions are a Greek salad stuffed into pocket bread and a whole crisp-fried soft-shell crab on a toasted bun. Here too are such international delights as Greek souvlaki pica, English-style tea sandwiches, Mexican tortas and tacos, and Italian bruschetta, all stunningly photographed by Viktor Budnik. A chapter on Breads and Spreads includes recipes for home-baked sandwich breads, pica, and focaccia, as well as homemade mayonnaise, mustard, salsa, and tapenade.
Finally, a wide-ranging encyclopedia of sandwich ingredients offers tips on buying and storing breads, meats, cheeses, and condiments. A primer on sandwich techniques explains the basics of cutting, wrapping, packing, and safely transporting all kinds of sandwiches.
"Sandwiches get boring when sandwich makers get bored," says the author. With The Art of the Sandwich beside you in the kitchen, you need never make or eat a boring sandwich again.
