Hey gang! Keith here.

According to the “fun calendar”, today is National Sandwich Day. Mmmmm.

Instead of sharing some great shots of our past sandwiches, I decided to throw a curve ball at our kitchen team this morning.

Chef Joe, Chef Angela and Chef Janet were busy with prep work and I sent down a challenge to them. It was simple – I wanted those three to go into the walk-in cooler and create a never-before-made sandwich to wow our readers. They recorded the process as they worked and here are the fruits of their labor… enjoy!

First, Chef Joe emerged from the walk-in with some fennel and started to crisp that up.

    Even though I am a vegan, I must say this dish looks so tasty and delicious. Thanks for sharing. If I ever eat fish again, I will surely come back to this. We do lots of events, weddings, and catering, and I can imagine if this was the fish selection, maybe at an interactive serving stations. cool stuff.
