A good sandwich starts with good bread.
That's why I couldn't resist buying a loaf of Farmer Rustica from the German Luneburger bakery in the bustling corridors of the QVB (Queen Victoria Building).
Farmer's Rustica $4.50
The Luneburger website describes this as a "round loaf made of wheat and rye. Soft and moist inside. Extending baking time makes a tasty rye-flavoured crust".
It is all this and more. The crust is a golden brown that is almost sweet and sticky, the bread inside is soft and fluffy, and despite its small appearance, this loaf packs a hefty 750g of sustenance.
Carve up into thick hearty slices, slather with good butter and sandwich with your favourite filling. I had leg ham, tomatoes, red capsicum and rocket leaves. One of the tastiest slap-dash lunches I've had in some time.
