Focaccia & Pesto Buns

Remember the La Place tuna salad I did ‘a little’ while ago? Oh come on, it was like yesterday I posted it! Well, I made the focaccia buns to go with them and people have nagged me for the recipe ever since, so here they are! These buns are so good. The bread is soft and fluffy, yet still dense enough to stand up to the tuna and all its…

La Place Tuna Salad

By far the best tuna (salad) sandwich you’ll ever sink your teeth into. There, I’ve said it. This is the tuna salad I paid good money for when I didn’t have the recipe yet; I thought it would be far more complex. They sell this beauty over at la Place—a lunchroom in the Netherlands that belongs to a chain of stores (V&D) that recently went bankrupt. Such a shame. Anyway,…

Kay’s Club Sandwich

Now this is a serious lunch. So serious in fact I have to split it with someone as I can barely eat half of this. I really wanted to share this recipe with you because I have a thing for club sandwiches—they make me all giddy and happy—probably because they’re kinda retro and I’m partial to old-school comfort food. But that aside; there’s something really satisfying about biting down on…

Chicken & Red Onion Sauce Sandwich

I have a love/hate relationship with the red onion sauce our grillrooms serve with the shoarma that’s often eaten after a night out. It’s one of the mellowest sauces ever, but also quite oily. It’s not exactly a low-fat recipe, but so chockfull of flavour and it goes with pretty much anything you can think of, and then some. That counts for something, right? Found only a small handful recipes…

Spring Chicken Sandwich

Finally I get to eat chicken salad sandwiches and drink serious glasses of milk again in the back yard while reading books! My favourite pastime. Crazy as it may sound, I built this sandwich around a bottle of mango vinegar; my latest culinary addiction. It turned out every bit as spring-like, fresh and wonderful as I hoped it would be. This sandwich is so chockfull of flavour, texture and surprising…

Bacon, Lettuce & Tomato Jam Sandwich

Bacon sandwich. Technically speaking I shouldn’t even have to write anything else after these two words, right? But I will, like I always do. I just don’t know when to shut up. The story is short and sweet; saw this divine combination of bacon and tomato jam in a Triple D episode about a place named Cutty’s in Boston. I’m such a die-hard Triple D fan, it’s pathetic. But anyway,…
