How I Taught My Brother To Cook

Improvisational Tuscan-Provençal-Catalan Cookery (and other good stuff to eat)

The sandwich is an all around favorite. Typically eaten at lunch, they are also a crowd pleaser at dinner as well, not to mention parties. There are places that can make an excellent sandwich and there are places that can absolutely destroy it. Of course, what you choose to put in your sandwich and what style bread to use is by your preference. However, having this done to your satisfaction may be a chore if you're ordering one at a deli, for example, because it may just miss the mark on your personal taste, which of course can be true for any food for that matter. But here, we're talking about the sandwich. Something that can easily be made at home whether you're kitchen challenged or not. The best part of a sandwich is the whole thing becomes an improvisation on your part based on what you have on hand and the bizarre ideas in your head. So, let's start with a classic: Turkey with lettuce, tomato, mayo, salt and pepper.

The Bread (Here we use homemade Pane di Napoleone)

The Split ( the loaf is slit lengthwise.)

Mayo, Salt & Pepper (the mayo is applied on both halves along with salt & pepper)

The Turkey (turkey layered generously and evenly)

The Tomato (sliced thin and again layered evenly on the turkey)

The Lettuce (layered on the tomato)

The Finished Product (ready to consume)
