LAVENDER DUCK SANDWICH!

This just in from "The Sandwich Man" who does an amazing job with his sandwich reviews whilst dining his way through Los Angeles.

His blog is called "The Danger Sandwich", where his luncheon/dinner picks are posted every Wednesday morning.The Sandwich Man knows good food and it's obvious that he puts a lot of thought into where and what he reviews/eats each week. Using what appears to be a 5 star grading system, TSM doesn't just order-up and eat. He takes time to learn about each of his picks and is very discriminating when handing down his scores. After all, one doesn't find a true five-star sandwich just anywhere.

The Lavender Duck Sandwich from "SweetSalt" in Toluca Lake had me with it's name alone. Then I read TSM's descriptives and what the sandwich consists of and it was "fo'get'about'it"!

Roasted Duck with Onion Confit, Goat Cheese, Alfalfa Sprouts and Lavender Honey on ciabatta bread. Yow! Go Sandwich Man, Get Dangerous!

  1. Wow! What a great combination! Thank you! Very inspired to try something similar like this for my church family. Though duck would be too pricey to feed a large crowd, I will try a different meat substitution. :)

  4. Wow, that does look amazing. I've never tried duck but with a sandwich like that, I'd be willing to give it a go.

  5. Pam, I guess that I'm more of a basic sandwich person... The duck and goat cheese, maybe even the sprouts or some other greens, would work for me. Perhaps drizzled with a little vinagarette on the ciabatta bread. Skip the onion confit and Lavender Honey...and rename the sandwich. Thanks, Big Daddy Dave

  8. Gee, what a unique combination of flavours! Duck isn't something I eat that often, but it really is a gourmet treat.

  9. Sounds yummy! You would want to make sure that the bread was really, really fresh so the flavours blend well.

  12. I was a bit doubtful about the lavender, until I saw the ingredients list. So jealous of this sandwich! :) I've only ever had duck once, I'd love to try it again, especially like this.
