A Girl, Her Goat, and Their Sandwich

Stephanie Izard, of Girl & The Goat, is competing in a virtual sandwich contest. Imagine eating a crisp panko-breaded pork loin sandwich with spicy-salty tapenade and sweet pepper aioli.

Now stop imagining things and go vote for Izard's sandwich (and get a copy of the recipe). If she wins Mezzetta's Celebrity Chef Sandwich Charity Challenge, Common Threads will get $10,000. Now that's a lot of, tapenade. Voting runs through September 6.
