Stopping by the Lunch Encounter for a kibbitz…the Kitchensquater! We kept him out of the kitchen but did allow him to pivot on a stool and reminisce about his school days in Providence RI, home to Geoff’s Superlative Sandwiches.
Besides the iconic lobster roll of summer, the sandwich that sticks in my craw from all those years ago at RISD is “Tosh’s Twister” made by Geoff’s Superlative Sandwiches on Benefit Street in Providence.
It was/ is sort of a take on a Reuben, with smoked turkey standing in for the corned beef. If memory serves, it was the smoked turk, melted swiss, sauerkraut, Shed’s hot sauce and romaine on a thick rye cut heated up in the steam presses they still use today at the shop. An early type of panini press, only without the grill plates, just steam and heat.
Made my eyes tear (in a good way…) and I cut through all that fat, protein and flavor with a Dr. Pepper.
