Slow-roasted meats, marinated vegetables, surprising flavor combinations, this is not your mother’s sandwich.
With acclaimed restaurants located across the United States, and a high-profile job as head judge of the hit show Top Chef, Tom Colicchio is one of the best-known chefs and personalities in the culinary world today.

In ’wichcraft, Colicchio shares the shops’ secrets with step-by-step recipes for all their best-loved offerings.

I got this for brother Jim two years ago for Christmas and it has been passed around between us all like a hot potato. Just reading it like a novel was a great way to spend a lazy, hot summer afternoon near the lake!
