Three words : Pan Bagnat + Beach + Picnic. In Nice, these three are like what peanut butter is to the jelly. And bread. Packing that cooler, exactly a year ago, October 2nd on the beach in Rockaway NYC. It was 90º that day, for the record. Alors Pan Bagnats sur la plage en Octobre, a must. Wait… did you try one yet?
So fragrant and tasty, don’t be afraid of the fish sauce it really makes the dish come together with the lime zest. I use ham because pineapple is a good digestive tool for pork.
