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!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
