Tomato Sandwich

Tomatoes on Spinach Ciabatta Roll. For this sandwhich, we recommend heirloom tomatoes at their peak of ripeness. You also want to use the tomatoes at room temperature. The flavors are more intense here. We used Black Krim grown in our backyard garden, and added a pinch of Dukkah to bring home the flavor. This is perhaps the most essential way to make a tomato sandwich, using only tomatoes, and it can really only be pulled off succesfully when they are very fresh and tasty.

Spanish Omelette Sandwich

While this is really more of an omelette than a sandwich, it still has the basic makings of a classic. The Spanish omelette includes fried potatoes, onions and eggs, and is prepared in a pan in the oven. Topped with tomato sauce, fresh greens and air-dried Spanish ham, it is absolutely delicious by itself. However, put it on bread, and you have a sandwich from heaven (or Spain).

Fried Plaice with Shrimp and Caviar

A Danish favorite, we owe this presentation to the restaurant at Sophienholm in Denmark. The fried plaice is a classic in danish sandwich making, and is found on nearly all restaurants. It is usually served as one of the first sandwiches in a meal (One should always start with the fish) right after the pickled herring sandwich. The batter is light, since the fish is the centerpiece in this little gem.
