Lunch “Let’s talk sandwich”

So, maybe the headline of this page is a little misleading. This week we are going to get an introduction to Garde Manger. I didn’t spell that wrong either. In French, it literally means “to keep, to eat”. In past centuries, that was literally what a garde manger did (preserve food items for future consumption). These days, we refer to garde manger as the “cold kitchen”. Salads, cured meats, sandwiches, dressings, cold buffets, and anything else cold really comes from the garde mangers kitchen. An American lunch typically revolves around items that are light, quick to eat, and relatively easy to assemble.
