Remember that scene in the movie Spanglish? When Adam Sandler is assembling his late night snack - a gourmet adaptation of the classic "BLT"? Remember that? Remember when the slices of rustic rye, topped with gruyere or gouda or swiss came out of the toaster oven so thoughtfully and calculated as to just melt the cheese and crisp the bread and contrast the freshness and coolness of the lettuce and tomato. And the touchdown on the last play of the game? The fried egg added at the very end and cooked just right and just runny enough so when he squeezed the sandwich and cut it into two, the yolk broke open like a sauce and actively brought all the ingredients together in a blissful harmony of texture and flavour? Remember that? Remember that sandwich? Mmmm....
Food porn indeed.
And leave it to Thomas Keller (culinary consultant to the movie), owner of the French Laundry, and perhaps one of the most highly regarded chefs on the planet, to transform the mundane into a masterpiece. Visual splendor. Leaving the viewer imagining and fantasizing about a great tasting sandwich.
