Food & Drink: What's Your Best Dish Disguised as a Sandwich?

Daphne Oz Reveals How She Meal Preps Using the Easiest Hack Ever

  Daphne Oz Reveals How She Meal Preps Using the Easiest Hack Ever “Cooking is one of those things that you can take up at any age and no matter how good you are at it.”“Being the overweight kid in a family full of health nuts, I needed to rejigger my relationship to the love I felt for food, the connection I felt to food, and the joy I felt for food while also taking good care of my body and positioning myself to feel as confident as I could in my skin,” Oz told Prevention.

In our last contest, we asked to see your new flavor combinations for an old classic— layer cake. We were blown away by the creativity of the submissions (especially our two finalists). This time around, we want to see that creativity channeled into a more savory pursuit: your best dish disguised as a sandwich!

We want to see a mash-up between your favorite knife-and-fork meal and the world's most perfect handheld food: the sandwich. Try a chicken cordon bleu torta, a chana masala pita wrap, a Korean BBQ French dip au jus (seriously, someone please do this)...just give the classics a twist!

How Capirotada Went from Medieval Leftovers to Beloved Bread Pudding

  How Capirotada Went from Medieval Leftovers to Beloved Bread Pudding Centuries ago, this dish was a way to drag one last meal out of old bread. Today, it's a sweet treat served at Easter.But here's the thing: It took 30 years and a boatload of research about Mexican food traditions for me to learn the actual name of the dish. I have distant, fond memories of eating bread pudding with the Mexican side of my family around Easter, and it's only recently that I've realized that we were eating capirotada, a style of bread pudding that's popular in Mexico and parts of the American Southwest.

  • We welcome sandwiches for any time of the day (breakfast sandwiches make us happy too!)
  • This time around, we want your savory recipes (sorry, ice cream sandwiches)
  • Although we love a classic Cuban roll, you can get creative about your sandwich "bread"

The contest winner will receive a gift from the Food52 shop.

18 Delicious Food Movies That All Deserve an Oscar

  18 Delicious Food Movies That All Deserve an Oscar And what to eat while watching.Watching Big Night is like observing my dream dinner party play out before my eyes. People dance, they drink, they lay on a table in a food coma (relatable), and—of course—they eat! Most of the movie focuses on one big night when a pair of brothers from Italy throw a blowout party to attract a famous Italian-American singer in the hopes that it boosts their struggling Italian restaurant in New Jersey. My stomach always grumbles non stop when I see the brothers serve course after course of a decadent meal that ends with an incredible baked pasta known as a timpano.

Here's a full refresher on how the whole contest process works.
