Recipe for Japanese-Style Ham Sandwich by Alix Lacloche
The chef revisits the classic French sandwich with the addition of Japanese ingredients such as nori sheets.
The French have the sandwich and the Japanese have onigiri, but in this recipe, Alix Lacloche combines the best of what both countries have to offer in terms of food to be eaten on the go. The unexpected alliance of jambon de Paris and crispy nori sheets, combined with the softness of Japanese sandwich bread from a Japanese bakery in Paris and brown butter, wipe away all past memories of bland, simple ham sandwiches.
