Chef Alex Sneazwell’s BLT at Sandwich & Sons
I recently had the pleasure of visiting Chef Alex Sneazwell at his new dining creation – Sandwich & Sons. The deli-style sandwich shop with a focus on local producers and craft products services a hungry
population of people working in an industrial area in northwest Edmonton, but Chef Sneazwell’s menu of simple yet delicious sandwiches has people driving across the city for bite of soup, classic cut fries, and a hearty sandwich.
My roommate Marc is a frequent visitor and compares Sandwich & Sons to a New York sandwich shop – where a simple sandwich shines because of the quality of ingredients and the fresh flavour.
When I arrived I had the opportunity to see a tower of power being created – the Sandwich & Sons BLT. The essential ingredients of a BLT sandwich are bacon, lettuce, tomato, bread and mayonnaise; however, we all know the ingredient that makes or breaks it is the bacon.
Alex starts with stacks of thick cut, double smoked bacon from his friend Jeff Senger of Sangudo Meats, adds in some baconaise, lettuce and tomato and layers it all between two slices of sourdough bread.
The BLT at Sandwich & Sons is truly a work of art, and definitely worth the drive. It happened to be parsnip and bacon soup day when I visited – be sure to grab a bowl of the sweet and salty soup if you have the chance. You can visit Alex for a big bite of bacon at:
