A Super Upsetting Cookbook About Sandwiches is kind of like PornBurger meets a neurotic New York chef. Tyler Kord owns and operates NYC's No. 7 restaurant and No. 7 Sub shops. His sandwiches look delicious. His mind looks like it never stops racing at Formula 1 speeds. Vrrroooom! Full eats ahead.
In A Super Upsetting Cookbook About Sandwiches, Kord shares recipes and ruminations, both unique to the chef's psyche and, some would say, genius. For example, taking a stance on Peruvian ceviche and authenticity:
People love to yell, "That's not authentic!" and hammer you for it. But if a food is good, and it becomes popular and other people copy you for it, and it becomes commonplace on menus, then won't it be "authentic" in ten or twenty years? If we decide what is authentic today, and nothing that is created after today can be authentic, then what will people talk about in the future when they discuss 2015?
Hmmm. Probably the Syrian refugee crisis and Kim Kardashian's boobs, Tyler.
Kord finishes his musings on authenticity with a recipe for Mi Corazon Llora, a ceviche sandwich with black bean hummus and Leche de Tigre mayo.
