Sandwiches Of The World
I was looking through some old photos of some food shots from my time in the US Virgin Islands. I came across a picture of a dish that was shot for the book "Sandwiches Of The World" by Allen Battman.
The book is a collection of International chefs who took the simple sandwich to an entirely new level. Battman has created not just a book of recipes, but a book of art.
I was extremely humbled to be included in this great book. To be included in a collection of recipes with many of the chefs that I grew up watching and reading about and continue to look up to was just amazing. The photo above was our "sandwich" at Havana Blue.
