Food Network Monthly Cookalong Theme - August

The theme this month is The Sandwich King! I love to watch Next Food Network Star and thought from the beginning how much I loved the concept of this show. I'll be honest, Jeff Mauro is a bit much for me and sometimes I wonder if anyone at Food Network is editing him but I do love a good sandwich so I keep watching!

So this month, I am challenging you to make sandwiches, any kind of sandwich! You can take your pick from Jeff's creations and veganize it, you can pick from any other chef's from the Food Network as well. You could even pick any recipe from the Food Network site and turn it into a sandwich! Like Jeff Mauro always says "You can make any meal into a sandwich, and any sandwich into a meal". Just like always the rules are super loose, let your imagination run wild and share it with us!

I will be talking sandwiches all month to celebrate the (early) release of Vegan Sandwiches Save the Day by Tamasin Noyes and Celine Steen as well (shipping now, just saying)! I had the joy of being a tester for this wonderful book and can vouch for the fact that is jam-packed with delicious sandwiches as well as all the staples you need to build your own masterpieces (ie. seitans, breads and spreads). And great news, simply leave a comment on this post about how much you love sandwiches and be entered to win a copy of Vegan Sandwiches Save the Day. You can also earn an extra entry for each blog post you send me at the end of the month participating in this month's cookalong. Contest is open to Canada and the US and will be drawn on Sept. 2, 2012. So grab a loaf of bread and get stacking! Let's see what kind of sandwiches you love!
