Liberty Cheesesteak Company: Real Deal Philly Cheesesteak

Finding no satisfaction in London’s “cheesesteak” offerings – or often any resemblance to the mega meaty two-hander sandwiches of Italian-American origin famously from his hometown – JP decided to bring it here himself. Long story short: he ended up having to come up with a recipe for the right kind of bread and even created his own “wiz” cheese sauce. As for the steak, JP was happy enough with already available rib eye, sliced ultra thin for tastiest and most genuinely Philadelphian results. Continue reading

Recipe: Peanut Butter and Pickle Chicken Melt with Sriracha Dijon Dip

As “blogger of the month” for Pip & Nut, I thought I’d come up with a few recipes using its creamy peanut butter. Here’s my first go: a peanut butter and pickle chicken melt with sriracha Dijon dip. Sound like a mouthful? That’s the idea! But if the prospect of blending peanut butter, pickle, cheese, chicken, hot sauce, mustard, and honey into one bite seems a little odd or even off putting, I’d suggest you at least try this mighty ensemble – you might be surprised how yummy (and not really all the unusual) it tastes. And if you reckon such a sandwich may well indeed do the trick to appease mega-flavour craving taste buds, you could find it’s actually even better than you imagine. Continue reading

Recipe: Three Bacon Butty with Lardo and Iceberg Lettuce

Having trouble choosing which was the best type of bacon to use, I simple decided to layer this epic sandwich with three of my favourite cures (English style back, American style streaky, and Italian pancetta) along with plenty of crisp iceberg lettuce for good measure and a couple of ultra thin slices of super savoury lardo to up the flavour to the next level of yum. The bread? I reckon it’s gotta be a crusty roll for added crunch with a bit of soft, sop-it-up texture on the inside. Continue reading

Deeney’s “Macbeth” Haggis Sandwich (Great British Chefs)

I love haggis. It’s one of the most savoury dishes I can think of and a true winter warmer. The blend of hearty oats, black pepper and, well, all those other ingredients that make haggis so infamously reviled among the squeamish add up to a flavoursome experience that’s unparalleled. And I’m not just hitting you over the head with a hyperbole stick either. Haggis really is one of my favourite foods. So when I heard about a haggis toastie (and that the Evening Standard had claimed it to be London’s best new sandwich) being sold just down the street from where I live, I was clicking my heals to the tune of Auld Lang Syne keen for a glimpse of this glorious sight warm-reekin!
