Baguette style is a family favourite for food on the go. The pocket means less chance of having to comfort a child (or adult) whose sandwich fell apart or dropped its filling.
The first version was for skiing picnics. Our german buddies showed us how to assemble sandwiches trail side trail side from buns, deli cuts, cheese, veg, dressing. Washed down with thermoses of hot chocolate and gluhwein.
Then came quick tourist (busy busy busy gotta keep moving) lunches at bakeries and charcuteries in France and Switzerland. Followed by relaxed and wonderful table d’hôte at days end.
A few encounters with Super Bowl six foot dogwood sandwiches.
Many Subway Sandwiches as our fast food of choice. Fresh foot long honey oat baguettes, fresh cooked chicken or meatballs, lots of vegetables.
And yummy Vietnamese baguette sandwiches. First as basic street food, and then fancier versions on the menu in little cafes alongside pho soup and traditional dishes.
