Oscar, the Executive Chef at Mandola’s Market, says this is his favorite sandwich. He estimates he’s eaten so many of them, it adds up to eating an entire pig. That’s a good sandwich! The Stugotz features Mandola’s house-baked focaccia bread, which is tasty enough to eat by itself. They load it up with really thin slices of prosciutto and genoa salami. Then, roasted red peppers, goat cheese, artichokes, ripe-olive tapenade and fresh Italian parsley. It’s toasted and served warm. Every bite gives you a lot of different flavors at once, all somehow accenting each other perfectly.
At the market, you can buy different rustic Italian breads to take home. After 5, they’re half-price.
