The John Oliver sandwich (New-York-style)

This sandwich became more famous after John Oliver popularized it, but the combo of goat cheese and olive paste (tapenade, borrowed from the French) has been a much older favorite in the New York area. Taste it and you'll see why :). 

Recipe source: Saveur.

Last year: nothing.
Two years ago: nothing.
Three years ago: nothing.
Four years ago: Japchae (Korean fried noodles) (vegan).
Five years ago: Roasted white onions with breadcrumb crust (vegan).
Six years ago: Three color pizza with basil, mozzarella, cherry tomatoes and avocado.
Seven years ago: Violet flame (cocktail).
Eight years ago: Stuffed baked avocados (Middle Eastern).

Ingredients (makes 1):
  • 2 slices of white bread or cranberry-walnut bread (I used a white poppy seed roll, cut in half)
  • 2 tbsp. goat cheese, softened
  • 2 tbsp. kalamata olive tapenade

Spread the cheese on the cut side of the bottom bread slice. Continue with the tapenade in a slightly smaller circle. It's done, dig in! :)

P.S: for a more delicious result, make sure the spreads are at room temperature before starting.
