Cheese Shop at the OC Mart Mix and That Sandwich

by Matt on April 5, 2012

Dear ever-so-helpful nice gentleman at Cheese Shop at The OC Mart Mix,

It is not my intention to take the sandwich you served us and make it my own. No way. But from that first bite it was difficult to get it out of my head. I might even say it’s the perfect sandwich. A triple cream cheese, Marcona almonds, a drizzle of honey, that perfect baguette, they’re all just so damn perfect together. And I completely understand your point of it being the perfect picnic sandwich; it’s perfect on the warm side, perfect on the chilly side. How many sandwiches can claim that?

Did I mention you have a marvelous store inside that groovy food mall in Costa Mesa? Yep, you do.

My Latest Favorite Sandwich

You don’t need a recipe for this. Take a baguette, slice it in half, layer a few slices of a triple cream brie, scatter some marcona almonds on top, then drizzle with honey. Place bread on top and dig in. It’s that simple. And do me this one favor: taste it first and marvel in its simplicity before you try to get all fancy and add anything else. It doesn’t need it.
