Seth,

I will be making this tonight and I will post pictures and a review as well. I am in love with Chef Keller's recipes and will certainly do everything in my power to do this one justice.

Regards,

Pete

Thanks! I will try some of these next week!

Also, I have lots of home-grown basil and arugula, so if anyone knows recipes that call for lots of either ingredient, I would be happy to try those as well. I have been making lots of basil pesto and arugula pesto, but only eating half of them before they go bad.

I have successfully frozen arugula and basil pesto. After thawing, scrape the dookie-brown top off and only use the good green inside. You might lose a lot on the sides as well, but it's nice to have some semi-fresh pesto from your garden out of season.
On the sandwich tip, anything goes. The key would be to bring all the ingredients unassembled. It will taste way better toasted or maybe add some ingredients from your workplace. Try some different cured meats/fishes and use that fresh arugula as the lettuce/greens element. I love the extra dimension of flavor arugula brings to a sammie.

My favorite portable sandwhich is a variation on a tuna nicoise: good preserved tuna, olive tapenade, Bibb lettuce, thinly sliced hard boiled eggs, and shaved Parmigiano Reggiano on ciabatta.

I'm partial to a good Cuban sandwich, and I love simple ham (jambon de bayonne) and butter on a baguette.

Had a waitress decide to order our cod dinner and just write "as a sandwich" on the ticket. There is a reason we don't have a cod sandwich on the menu.

I love maple turkey and Swiss with vegetable cream cheese (easy to make yourself ) on a cranberry baguette with watercress.

Altoids aren't going to help much after that. Delicious, though.

Arugula pesto with cold sliced flank steak, grainy mustard and caramelized onions on baguette

i do an asian version of a cuban( beer and pineapple juice braised pork butt, kimchi and melted swiss with spicy chinese mustard) pressed and delicious cold or hot .

we also do a very interesting panini.
honey dijon and whole cumin seed roasted pork loin thin sliced. Yukon gold, scallion, Dijon potato salad . arugula and smoked gouda.
1)take a nice crusty demi loaf and cover the outside with dijon butter.( 1tbl dijon to 1/2 cup softened butter)
2) thin slice the pork loin and lay in a pie pan and thin slice some smoked gouda and melt it in the oven ( this is important, golden brown cheesey crust.
3) place potato salad on bread, then pork cheese layer, then arugula and a little balsamic vinaigrette. place in a press or put in a low saute pan and place another pan on top, cook until golden brown and then vacuum it down your gullet. umm umm. best hot, awesome cold.
