A few friends of mine and I went to see Martha Stewart in live action yesterday as guests in her studio audience. The topic was all about sandwiches. Being crushed for time, as usual, I was unable to eat anything beforehand. So, I get to the show feeling a bit drained and completely famished.
It didn’t seem like a big deal, I figured I’ll just eat afterward. Um, yeah, huge mistake that turned out to be! As soon we walked onto the set, we see a 10 foot long club sandwich, with a wide array of selections like roast beef, ham & cheese, turkey, and even chickpea & fennel as a choice. Oh my gawd! And it was only the beginning!
Usually her segments involve some craft work, but not this one. It was all about how to whip up these wonderful looking sandwiches or rather, sinwiches, like the French dip, made with an amazingly juicy cut of slow cooked beef. A tantalizing roast pork sandwich fragrant enough to drive a pack of starved wolves mad! Ooh, and this sandwich oozing with Fontina cheese from Murray’s and a couple of bacon strips (x marks the spot). The whole studio was perfumed with scents of heavenly lusciousness. I am off to the kitchen, all this sandwich talk is making me dizzy with hunger!
It was a great experience. Thank you so much for the inspiration, Martha! Next show we’re hitting up is ABC’s “The Chew.” Yay, I can’t wait!
