Food & Thought number 6 was delicious, and thoughtful

December 7, 2010

Have you ever had homemade Spam? We hadn’t either, till our Sandwich party at SFMOMA last week!


Jerome Waag of Chez Panisse and OPENrestaurant made “spam” from scratch and invented The Green Eggs and Spam sandwich, which references the Hawaiian proclivity to Spam as well as Hawaii’s former incarnation as the Sandwich islands.

We really appreciate the generosity of all our event sponsors, who made it possible: SFMOMA, Blue Bottle Coffee, Swanson Vineyards, Trumer Pils, OPENrestaurant, Bar Tartine and Tartine. And thank you to the chefs who created delicious and innovative sandwiches!


Leif Hedendal of Cooking with Leif made smørrebrød of ricotta, stinging nettle, horseradish, apple, finocchio, and fine herbes.


Leah Rosenberg of Blue Bottle made a trio of little triangle cakewiches to make up a “club sandwich.”

Chris Kronner of Bar Tartine made hogwiches: smoked hog jowl with kale on Tartine bread.


It was a lovely rainy night on the SFMOMA rooftop.


Special thanks to our amazing volunteers!
