One of the great American arts, which varies from being a triumph to being a disaster, is the art of sandwichmaking. First, the all-important foundation. You must have good, firm bread and sweet butter. Next, the filling.

It doesn’t matter if the filling is nothing more than peanut butter and jelly.

I adore Erin Jang’s Food Sketches series. Totally brill.

Here, the Lenny’s sandwich.

If you have an appetite for flavors, not just for gluttony but for delicious flavors, you’re naturally going to seek the best of seasonal offerings, and so there’s a kind of healthy sense to it.
