I was fortunate to have a chat with Johan Rademan on RSG on Tuesday, but I am sure you all know that already from following Twitter and Facebook!. Never in my wildest dreams did I anticipate such a response, wow, I was so overwhelmed! Thank you for the wonderful support!
I have had so many emails and phone calls of people complaining about their horrible sandwiches that I just have to do this post and share some of my easy, but delicious sandwich ideas. For those who have seen all these sandwiches, please forgive, at least here they are all nicely grouped together.


On Tuesday I made the following sandwiches.

Snoek and Patat Sandwich with Citrussy Hollandaise and Fynbos Honey
I used Patat(Sweet Potato) Bread that I bought from our local bakery.
Buttered the bread, layer fresh butter lettuce, shredded smoked snoek on top.
Serve with halved grapes(white and Black) and some of the Citrussy Holandaise Sauce.
For the hollandaise, I just used this recipe and sweetened it with some fynbos honey.

Caprese Sandwich
Wholewheat bread
Ripe Homegrown tomatoes – sliced
Buffalo Mozzarella – torn in pieces
Basil pesto and a few drizzles of basil oil
Fresh basil.

Roasted Pepper and Goat’s Cheese
Onion and Olive loaf – bought from local bakery
Roasted peppers – Pop whole peppers(yellow,green and red) in a hot oven. When they are black, remove and place in a glass bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let it sweat and then remove the skin off the peppers. Slice in thin strips, season with salt/pepper and preserve in olive oil in fridge.
Goat’s cheese
a few fresh sprouts
a drizzle of lemon and some black pepper

Coppa Ham, Rocket and Berry Sandwich with Balsamic reduction
Ciabatta – sliced diagonally
buttered
layer with any kind of ham you like, I used coppa.
fresh blue berries and raspberries
fresh rocket
a drizzle of lemony olive oil and balsamic reduction(buy or make your own)

Cream Cheese, Watercress and Salami Sandwich.
Wholewheat bread
Spread with Cream Cheese and top with fresh watercress and a few slices of salami.
Drizzle with olive oil and some balsamic reduction. Salt and Black pepper.

I will be having a talk about photography and food styling. I am counting the sleeps to share the stage with Jeanne our beloved Cooksister and Sam from Drizzle and Dip at the 2011 Food Bloggers Indaba. This event was held for the first time last year  and it was such a roaring success that people cannot wait to attend again this year. Bookings are streaming in and I suggest you act fast not to miss out on this amazing event. So if you are already a blogger or if you are interested in becoming one, this is the place to be on 20 February 2011. Book now! I believe there is only 30 places left!!

    Sumptuous looking sandwiches Nina – I have to admit that I share your favourite though….when nothing else tempts, a fried egg sandwich hits the spot (or Marmite on toast…but you may not agree with me here).

    Sally -I LOVE Marmite!!!

    These look fit for a king, Nina. Sandwiches are one of the best ways to show of your creativity, I think. Congratulations on the gig. How cool to be on radio!

    Yum, they look amazing! Too bad I can't eat bread. Or any bread that tastes remotely like bread. Congrats on the success on the radio!

    I should know better than to browse blogs and visit Easy Cooking at midnight. You have me wanting to head to the kitchen to create a sandwich:D

    Your roast beef and creamed horseradish sandwich would be a bit hit at all of the football parties going on here in the U.S. today and also for the Superbowl. What a wonderful selection of sandwiches – something for everyone!

    These are such imaginative sandwiches, way better than the dullards I pack my husband and son off with. Shame on me!
