In this great nation of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around the country. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.
When Fatted Calf, our newest San Francisco retail charcuterie, tweeted their recent sandwich special, I knew I had to try it. Headcheese, ham, butter lettuce and pickled turnips filled a crusty baguette that was liberally spread with garlic butter.
The headcheese was peppery and quite soft, and was butted up against thin slices of house-prepared ham that had a delicious layer of fat. Pickled turnips added a small amount of acid—a nice contrast to the meat. The sandwich was already so rich that I could have done without the butter on the baguette. But, combined with a good, bitter IPA on a warm San Francisco day, the sandwich made for a delicious lunchtime treat.
