Reuben Sandwich, Step-by-Step
It's amazing how much goes into the making of the most basic elements of our food culture. We consider ham and cheese sandwiches, or PBJs, to be simple foods, but we don't often make our own cheese, bread, or peanut butter. Maybe that's what makes Jeremy's project at A Cheese a Day even more admirable. Not only has he set out to make a cheese a day, he also decided to make a Reuben sandwich entirely from scratch. He baked the rye bread, pressed the Swiss cheese, cured the pastrami, and mixed the Russian dressing. And made it seem possible for the rest of us to follow in his footsteps.
