about this book

Celebrating the original Italian sandwich, this book covers more than 45 recipes, all from simple favorites like three cheese with tomato and basil or hearty pulled pork with slaw to sophisticated combinations such as nectarine, arugula, and brie or roasted peppers with goat cheese and salsa verde.

Each recipe displays the ingredients like a sandwich board, making it easy to choose the bread, fillings, and condiments to make your ideal sandwich. You’ll also learn tips, like why it’s important to coat the bread with oil or butter, how to layer ingredients for maximum results, and why using a weighted press for toasting will elevate your creation from ordinary to divine.

So, whether you want an over-the-top sandwich riff on a favorite comfort food, like artichoke-spinach dip or jalapeno poppers, a decadent combination such as roast pork with bacon, pickled onions and pepper jack, or something simple and healthy like grilled salmon with herbed cream cheese, you’ll find the perfect panini in these pages.
