Walk down any street in Annecy's Centre Ville and tucked in between the larger merchants you'll find small prêt à emporter places where you can grab a sandwich or a small quiche, maybe an espresso. It's perfect for a quick bite when you're out exploring (or shopping!)
It was in one of those places where I tasted my first jambon- beurre. Served on a smaller-than-usual baguette, these sandwiches come wrapped in their own little bag which makes them easy to hold and eat on the go.
The combination of the creamy butter, the salty thinly sliced ham and cheese, and the crusty baguette makes these simple sandwiches irresistible. Here at home I've tried (oh how I've tried) to recreate the jambon-beurre, but with no success. You wonder "How hard can it be to make this? It's just a ham sandwich, after all!" But those of you who've had one of the sandwiches know what I'm talking about, n'est-ce pas?
So tell me, who among you has discovered the secret to the jambon-beurre?
