Hi all, I have not been around for awhile, the Holidays were really busy for me. Lots of candy making and catering like a mad person.
However I am now back on track, and my creative juices are starting to flow once again. Have some great ideas for the cafe.
Today I made a new veggie sandwich with roasted poblano chili's, eggplant, yams, portabello mushrooms, red onion, on a seeded roll with the middle torn out and smeared with mango chutney, it was a hit with me and so far everyone else is happy, happy too!! :D
I had some wonderful meals that are always an inspiration to me, while on vacation, one in particular was a sandwich/Torta at Tamarind in Oakland, (I highly recommend the restaurant) between Broadway and Washington on 8th st. The food was served ala carte, so kind of tapa's style, anyway I digress, the Torta was a well seasoned chicken breast with re fried black bean smear, avocado, roasted poblano's jack cheese and lettuce...it was a very well balanced sandwich and we liked it very much.
Now to recreate that sandwich to fit in my cafe is a challenge, because as we all know avocado's oxidizes terrible fast......so I am going to make an avocado aioli, with lemon, and roasted garlic, "no more oxidation problem" I am going to change the cheese to pepper jack, and keep the black bean smear, and change the bread to dutch crunch.
Okay, I will be back tomorrow with updates on the new sandwich, any ideas please send them my way, I am always open.
Chow for now!!
