A Super Upsetting Cookbook About Sandwiches by Tyler Kord Review
Tyler Kord is chef-owner of the lauded No. 7 restaurant and No. 7 Sub shops in New York. He is also a fabulously neurotic man who directs his energy into careless ruminations on sandwich philosophy, love, self-loathing, pay phones, getting drunk in the shower, Tom Cruise, food ethics, and what it's like having the names of two different women tattooed on your body.
Most of these ruminations also happen to be truly excellent recipes, like roast beef with crispy shallots and smoky French dressing, or a mind-blowing mayonnaise that tastes exactly like pho. [Tyler, you never did finish writing that fried squid recipe though. You know that, right? -Ed.] This is his first book. If you buy it, you can help make sure it won't be his last.
You can purchase this book on Amazon.
Cassandra's Review- This is a totally interesting cookbook but the ingredients in most of the sandwiches I would not personally eat. I was actually grossed by most of them. The creativity is unique and I cannot say that they would not actually taste good, but they are just not yum factor to me.
In the back of the book there are recipes to create single foods and basic potato chips, things you would need to include in the sandwich, and they are easy to understand and look good. I would recommend this book to anyone who is sick of eating normal food and wants to really kick it up a notch in flavor choices. Also to those with a strong stomach and that are open to eating new foods.
I recevied a complimentary copy.
