When I’m at the hair salon, the conversation between my incredibly cool British stylist and me quite often turns to food. Sometime around the blow dry and flat-iron stage I usually extract one or two excellent recommendations from him of places to eat downtown. The best one so far has been the Turkey Cobb sandwich from a lovely bakery café called Con Pane, in Liberty Station (yes, it’s featured in my sandwich guide!).

Roasted turkey, bacon, avocado, sweet roasted Roma tomatoes, just a sprinkling of Gorgonzola cheese and romaine lettuce on their airy, house-baked rosemary olive oil bread – Con Pane has created an absolute masterpiece with this one. For my grilled version, I waited until after the sandwich came off the grill to add in the romaine. That way I could have the toasted bread and melted Gorgonzola while still keeping the greens fresh and crisp. In celebration of the upcoming Fourth of July, I’ve dubbed these sandwiches Red, White & Blue Cheese Panini. :-)

I wouldn’t make it as is because I’m not a tomato or mayo fan BUT you’ve truly got me wanting a turkey or chicken sandwich with loads of bacon and lettuce! It seriously looks delicious.

The sun-dried tomato/Gorgonzola combination sounds fantastic. What a tempting sandwich, Kathy.

My hairstylist and I are constantly talking about food, too. It doesn’t hurt that she’s Italian, has a Mom who had a catering company and a sister who cooks at a restaurant in Napa. No wonder I always leave the salon feeling famished. ;)
