Poki Tuna Sandwich

Oh my, we haven’t posted for years… We finally got this site resurrected from the dead, and while we didn’t have time to write down the recipe, here is some inspiration. This is a poki-tuna sandwich, which is Poki Tuna from Costco, spiced up with a little sriracha sauce and toppings.

Enjoy

Lavash Art; Bob Marley on a Cracker

We recently got invited to a birthday party, where everyone had to bring ‘art’ appetizers or desserts. We decided to make Lavash, it’s a recipe we make regularly, it tastes great, and the catered food at the event was middle eastern, so it was perfect.  We thought a huge cracker could serve as a perfect canvas for art.

So, we bought a couple of templates, one of fall leaves, and one of Yoda. Wendie printed a black-and-white image of Bob Marley, and cut it into a template as well. And then, off the the ovens.

Garden Zucchini Carpaccio Sandwich

When we make our Garden Zucchini Carpaccio, we sometimes use it as a topping for an impromptu sandwich as well. Since the salad is not very wet, it lends itself perfectly to the bread, and the crunch from the fresh zucchini’s and radishes goes very well with a softer bread without crust.

Caesar Salad, New Years 2012 Gourmet Dinner

First of all, we’re sorry about the VERY slow release of new sandwiches and recipes, we’ve been extremely busy with other projects, but we hope to return to making at least a couple of posts per month.

Last night we had a great New Years eve dinner with our friends. It’s a tradition, and we always cook a 7-course gourmet meal, with each couple making one or two dishes, paired with a great drink/wine. As you can imagine, we’re rather buzzed at the end of the night. Since Wendie got a Thomas Keller The French Laundry Cookbook, she decided to make a Caesar Salad. The Caesar Salad was made with a crouton, which makes it a sandwich (a tiny one) in our mind!

Prosciutto Pizza with Pesto and Portobello Mushrooms

We recently went on a short weekend getaway to Santa Barbara, and on the way home we decided to stop by the Mario Batali pizzeria in Los Angeles called “Mozza.”  We shared a Fried squash blossoms with ricotta pizza which was excellent, but did lack a little bit of oomph. It was bland I guess, but good. We were sitting at the bar, watching the chefs prepare the dough, and learned a new technique to keep the bubbles in the edge. So we thought we would give it a try, and make a similar pizza in style, but with much more taste in it.

Chicken Sandwich



One sandwich I have never gotten around to liking is the chicken salad sandwich. Perhaps it’s because I was introduced to it at a deli counter. The mayonnaise was so plentiful that I could hardly taste the chicken. Since then I’ve stayed away from all chicken salads, and supermarket deli counter foods for that matter.  Still searching for a quick meal last night I decided to attempt to make my own and thereby kill two birds with a single chicken breast: rescue the chicken salad from mayonnaise hell and make a week night meal in time for Anders and I to enjoy a date night (go see the movie Unstoppable).  Both were handily accomplished.

Rosemary-Olive bread with Burrata, Lavender Balsamico, Dukkah and Baby Tomatoes



We love light spring-sandwiches that brings out the best in the ingredients such as heirloom tomatoes or burrata cheese.  For this one we happened to have a bit of both, plus some of our homemade dukkah which is perfect for sandwiches like this. We also recently bought an amazing Lavender Vinegar from VivaOlivia which worked perfectly with the mild burrata and the pop-pop of bursting tomatoes as you chew.
