If a restaurant were to name something after you, what would it be? Describe it. (Bonus points if you give us a recipe!)  Photographers, artists, poets: show us DINNER.

If a restaurant were to name a sandwich after me, it would be called “the Generalist”.  I know a little about a lot of different things.  I sometimes feel like a repository for a lot of useless information.  Some would say I only know enough to get myself into trouble.

Please note:  I have not actually made this sandwich.  Ham and cheese happens to be a favorite of mine so I thought I would build upon that and use ingredients that all said a little something about me.

The Generalist

Two slices of Bauernbrot (German Farmer’s bread) to honor my German heritage for a whole grain taste with a nice spice

A slice of Kerrygold Dubliner cheese (a mature cheddar with sweet nutty tones of a Swiss and the piquant bite of aged Parmesan) to honor my Irish heritage

A slice of brown sugar baked ham.  The sweetness of the sugar complements the salty flavor of the ham.

A swirl of Dijon mustard for those 5 years of French I took in High School. Dijon mustard has a sharper taste.

Romaine Lettuce because it’s tall and sturdy

A slice of beefsteak tomato for freshness and old-fashioned flavor
