Unplanned perfection

Posted in News by thesandwichclub on June 30, 2011

When I typed in “planning” into the world of Google the first result that caught my eye read “simple planning makes for a more enjoyable vacation”. I’m sure this statement is true, but today’s lunch was a very much unplanned affair and resulted in one of the most delicious.

Behold, today’s special I picked up in FRESH – minted lamb and salad Panini.

The daily specials are exactly why FRESH is an appropriate name. The lamb was slow roasted, tender and succulent, coupled with the minted mayonnaise and fresh salad it was an absolute pleasure to eat. Keep an eye out for this special if you are yet to try.


I ♥ Anchovies

Posted in Features by thesandwichclub on June 22, 2011

Last week the Sandwich Club experimented with an ingredient that is often overlooked and hated – anchovies. However the humble anchovy tastes so good on pizza, adds depth to pasta dishes, and works really well in sandwiches.

After a brief bit of brainstorming and some internet research, two sandwiches were decided upon:

  • Anchovies, Egg, Cream Cheese, Rocket, Pepper
  • Anchovies, Cherry Tomato, Cheese (mature cheddar used here, but Manchego would work great), Olives, Capers, Rocket

In pictures it went a bit like this:

We’ll leave it to you decide if it’s something to be ‘celebrated’!



Feasting never stops

Posted in News by thesandwichclub on June 10, 2011

Feasting never stops is one of the finest food related sites I have come across lately.  It showcases a collection of photographs from across the world inspired by food and culture. It is definitely worth exploring the archives for some fantastic pictures. Here is a sample of my recent favourites. Thanks to inventory magazine for the link.

As it happened

Posted in News by thesandwichclub on June 8, 2011

I forgot about this picture. I was watching MasterChef a while back and someone knocked at the front door so I put the show on pause. Gregg Wallace’s face in full sugar rush peak!

It’s been a while since the last post and I can’t really give a good excuse as to why, but since then notable events have included the Giro D’italia, house parties, DFA79 and finishing a PhD.

One of the more memorable events on a recent trip to London to watch Death From Above 1979 included two parking tickets (£136) and being locked out of our accommodation. Two things that can really frustrate me are being so late as to almost miss a gig and paying out large sums of money for f%!k all! Talking of paying out large sums of money, on the journey to London we stopped at Leigh Delamere services. No surprises that M&S won hands down in the battle between WH Smith, Burger King and Costa.
