Want to see what I had for lunch the other day?
This is a Black Forest sandwich – my entry for Urban Harvest’s inaugural sandwich competition.
I took two slices of Simply Paris chocolate bread and slathered them with cream cheese, then added slices of black doris plum (I initially wanted to use cherries, but they’re now out of season until next Christmas, sob!). Then I sliced and toasted a handful of almonds and scattered them on top. A light dusting of icing sugar and voila, a sandwich so good I ate it all greedily before remembering that I needed to photograph it as well.
If you’re a luncheon sausage and tomato sauce sort of sandwich eater, then this obviously isn’t the thing for you. But if you’re a fan of luscious chocolate bread, tangy cream cheese, juicy plums and crunchy almonds, you’re going to love it. Excuse me while I go and make another one for breakfast…
