Learn About the Magic of the Reuben at Sandwich Lab: SPREAD


I am such a sucker for the Reuben. And I know I am not alone in my deep love for this sandwich. One partner in Reuben love is Meatpaper, which is throwing their third Sandwich Lab, SPREAD, on Tuesday August 17th at ~18 REASONS~. You’ll learn how to make a homemade version of Russian dressing, and along with the spread, you’ll assemble your own Reuben, with sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, corned beef, and rye bread, to be thrown on the griddle. As you munch, Faun Skyles, Bi-Rite Market’s deli manager and an overall deli historian in her own right, will discuss the anatomy of the perfect Reuben, as well as the many beliefs behind the birth of this iconic sandwich. Beer will be provided.

Co-hosted by Meatpaper’s Sasha Wizansky and Bi-Rite’s Susan Kim, Sandwich Lab is a four-part series intended to get to the bottom of sandwich-mania. Attendees will learn about the sandwich from the outside in, make and eat many different sandwich types, and investigate why we love sandwiches oh so much. Be prepared to get your hands dirty!
