Tips and tricks for making the best sandwiches at home.

Fun Fact: the co-owners of Caffè in Boulder, Colorado used to work at the French Laundry before moving to Colorado and opening their first restaurant, Frasca.

The Italiano ($8.50) at Caffè is a hot sandwich with prosciutto, salami, mortadella and provolone. House-made pickled vegetables add a nice acidity that balances the richness of the meats. The bread is a variation of pizza dough and is baked at a sister restaurant which happens to be a pizzeria.

Sandwiches are served with small bags of potato chips that are custom-bagged for the restaurant, and a pickle spear is an extra 30 cents.
