Jambon-Beurre (Parisian Ham Sandwich) | Kitchn | NEWSRUX

The effortlessness of French magnificence extends from style and structure to artwork and meals (bien sûr!). Within the fingers of the French, even the only elements can develop into essentially the most satisfying and scrumptious meal you’ve eaten in days. Take the jambon-beurre. This sandwich is a café basic requiring simply three elements and moments to make. When the ingredient checklist is so brief, normal lunchmeat and sandwich bread merely is not going to do. I turned to David Lebovitz, an American expat in Paris, for recommendation on the way to deliver this Parisian staple dwelling.

The Sandwich I Eat Each Spring

Again within the spring of 2020, in the course of the preliminary lockdowns as a result of pandemic, David Lebovitz took to Fb together with his accomplice, Romain Pellas, to organize jambon-beurre. Their video got here at simply the best time. I used to be confined at dwelling with journey an impossibility, but reminiscing a couple of spring break spent in Paris with my sisters. The peek into their Parisian kitchen, the banter, and the care with which they selected three easy elements was a welcome distraction from my current. I return time and again to the benefit and magnificence of this straightforward sandwich — particularly within the spring. The sturdy sandwich is the proper factor to pack for spring picnics and evenings on the ballpark.

What Substances Are Wanted for Jambon-Beurre?

You solely want three issues for this sandwich: a baguette, butter, and ham. David and Romain are fortunate to have entry to specialty bakers and grocers, however there are equally good choices accessible at shops right here within the States. Whereas a regular baguette from my neighborhood chain grocery retailer would technically work right here, to do that sandwich justice I head to a smaller market that sells domestically baked baguettes. The identical market additionally sells jambon de Paris, or French-style ham. Should you can’t discover that, purchase the best-quality, thickly sliced unsmoked ham. Add moisture and richness to the sandwich with butter — Kerrygold is a good choice, as is Banner Butter (a local-to-me model that additionally ships nationwide). In case your butter is unsalted, go forward and season the buttered bread earlier than laying on strips of ham. Whereas not completely required, I comply with David and Romain’s recommendation and serve the sandwich with cornichons for crunch.
