The ArtiClogger: Monte Cristo Cinnamon Sandwich (Poway Style)

Our friends Shelley and Jens have a thing for stuff that is deep fried. Being from the south, Shelley grew up frying fowl, but Jens is Danish and just developed a taste for it after meeting Shelley (we think). In any case, their love is strong so for Jens’ birthday last month, they had a ‘bring stuff to deep-fry’ party. We had deep fried chicken legs and thighs and wings, battered deep fried shrimp, deep fried Twinkies (Better than un-fried I might add, although still disgusting), and of course we brought; Sandwiches. We were a bit shocked to discover this, but of course someone has done this before, and there is a famous sandwich called the Monte Cristo with turkey, ham and cheese, and served with sugar and jam on top; a sweet, possible dessert, sandwich. So, we made it (and it was good, but fattening like a neutron bomb in your belly). This was an evening party and we forgot our good camera, so please excuse the photo quality…

Ciabatta with Rembrandt Extra Aged Gouda, Jamaican Logwood Honey And Smoked Paprika

Combining something sweet with something spicy is an old tradition that has come back into fashion. It is no longer uncommon to see chili-infused chocolate in grocery stores, and the reason is of course that it works. We bought some amazing honey in Jamaica, which brings the best out in this great cheese, the Rembrandt extra aged Gouda. The smoked paprika takes it up a notch. The simple life.

Cardamom Crisp Roll with Rembrandt Extra Aged Gouda, Raspberry Sauce and Rajma Masala

It was one of those day were we just wanted a simple snack. Luckilly we had some leftover raspberry sauce from our Christmas panna cotta desert (which was fantastic), so with a good cheese, some cardamom crisps, and a crazy idea of adding a touch of India, we came up with this. We really liked the pairings, the rajma masala brought out a little extra zing from the cardamom, almost making it stronger.
