Chef Tom Colicchio of Top Chef fame was at Bryant Park this afternoon discussing his sandwich cookbook, 'wichcraft. In this video, he talks about the sandwich recipe he is most proud of, which just so happens to be vegan! The sandwich was created by a group of kids who interned at his restaurant via an annual partnership with the Fresh Air Fund.
Not only is the sandwich vegan, but Tom mentions that he was impressed with the kids for coming up with the “sophisticated” sandwich, in response to the number of people who came into the restaurant asking for more vegan options.
The sophisticated sandwich consists of: Marinated eggplant with chickpea puree, roasted peppers, and watercress.
