While I was in SF on my eating marathon, I received an email from Bonnie Penders, the wonderful mother of my friend Katie. I was in SF and the Penders’ clan was in Galveston, TX enjoying some family fun in the sun. Bonnie emailed me for some help. She had eaten a delicious sandwich and wants to recreate it at home, so she called upon me to figure it out. Based on what Katie told me about her mother, she is an A+ nonna. She loves to cook and teach her EIGHT grandchildren about good food. She is a master gardener that donates herbs from her garden to a local homeless shelter. Bonnie knows the benefit of a fresh meal and shares with those less fortunate. Martha Stewart could learn a thing or two from Mrs. Penders!
Therefore, this email made me all sorts of happy. It was exciting to be called upon to figure out a delicious recipe for a friend. If you have a cold; call the doctor. If you eat a great sandwich, call me! Your food advisor, Heirloom Kitchen, to the rescue! Needless to say, I was quite honored to be given this task.
Coming up with this recipe was so much fun. I did a little digging, a lot of research and came up with what I think is the perfect replicate of Maceo Spice & Import Co’s famous Muffaletta sandwich.Read More
