A Super Upsetting Cookbook About Sandwiches
Although perhaps not ‘super upsetting’, this book certainly turns the idea of what a sandwich is, on its head! While it has the usual sandwich stars, you will not find any usual sandwiches. How about adding some cilantro, ginger, dill, and pickled bean sprouts to Roast Beef, which, itself, has been slow-roasted then simmered for hours in a savory broth? Or start building up your breakfast sandwich with Mexican Chorizo you have made yourself? Author and chef Tylor Kord loves to surprise, for example, with vegetal sandwiches stuffed with asparagus and lime or roasted cauliflower and potato chips (really!). Beef, chicken, sausage, vegetables, seafood, and more all star in their own unique assemblages, and pickles, sauces, and other accompaniments get their chances to shine as well. The recipes are amazing and the photographs are ravishing, and they are perfectly complemented with the cheeky, audacious writing that accompanies them, peppered with pop-cultural references and a modern vibe. In the recipe introductions, and in the instructions themselves, Kord mixes his life philosophy with his love for outstanding food with visionary artistry that is reflected in his sandwiches. The book is a treat to read; the results a delight to devour!
