The time has come for another Ethnic Potluck with the Ayden Kitchen & Bar crew, and this time I drew Cuba! What dish would I cook? Well, with my reputation for delicious sandwiches, and my last Ethnic Potluck contribution being a Banh Mi, it made perfect sense that I tackle the famous Cubano! Now, when serving Cuban Sandwiches to a room full of chefs, you can’t go about it half-assed! Although I have never been to Cuba, or had an authentic Cuban Sandwich, from my research, I knew the bread was a very important part. It’s a sandwich, so of course the bread is important. It’s half the damn thing!

I can’t believe it’s September already. Where did this summer go? I’m not sure if it was having the snow stay into early May or just being so busy, but this summer seemed to wiz right by. With September here in full force, so is school. Yup that’s right – back to the books, the late night studies, copious amounts of coffee and the ever growing wealth of knowledge. When CTV Morning Live contacted us about doing another segment, this time anchored around budget and student friendly meals, Bob and I agreed to the challenge (the video of the segment is posted below – tune in to see who received the “dunce” cap). Bob made some flavour packed chicken cacciatore and my rival dish was one of my favourite foods: Vietnamese cold rolls. Let’s get to my recipe (which by the way costs an average of $2.49 CAD for a serving of four cold rolls).

So if anyone knows me really well, they will know that fresh rolls are my weakness and probably one of my top ten favourite foods. The bonus? These little guys are fairly healthy too – especially if you pack them full of veggies. So let’s get to this asian delight of a recipe! Continue reading
