Autostrada Sandwich

In Food, On Location: Out and About in L.A. on January 18, 2009 at 6:02 pm


Locals have long known about Campanile’s Grilled Cheese Night each Thursday. Some of the greatest hits from the menu are available next door at La Brea Bakery all week long, like the divine “Autostrada” sandwich. It’s La Brea Bakery founder and Mozza co-owner (as well as Campanile owner Mark Peel’s ex-wife) Nancy Silverton’s riff on a panini she once had at a truck stop on an Italian road trip. Loaded with provolone, soprasetta, mortadella, coppa and slices of marinated cherry peppers and grilled between two slices of sourdough bread, it elevates the humble ham and cheese to otherworldy heights. You could make your own (click here for recipe), but why?
