Gastronomic Memories from a Corner Deli

Years ago while meandering in Georgetown on a sunny afternoon, I serendipitous found a corner deli and ordered the most delicious roast beef sandwich I had in Washington, DC!

Here are the ingredients:  A baguette, mayo, horseradish cream, pickled beets, lettuce, tomatoes, grass-fed roast beast and Swiss cheese.

That summer, I went a few more times to the deli to eat that sandwich, talk to its maker and to memorize it symphony of colors, textures and flavors.  I am not much of a sandwich eater but occasionally, I make myself this sandwich and complement it with a glass of red wine, to honor the artistic hands who made the original ones and, to remember those distant summer afternoons in Georgetown.

If you wish to try it, enjoy!
