A Sandwich a Day: Italian Picnic at Olio in Richmond, VA

Yesterday, Serious Eats posted my “A Sandwich a Day” feature about Olio in Richmond, VA. An excerpt:

I knew I wanted a sandwich that would take advantage of the quality bread, meat, cheese, produce, and condiments I was seeing. There were lots of tempting choices on the menu, but my love of stinky cheese tilted my decision to the Italian Picnic ($8.49). The sandwich features a generous portion of freshly sliced, house-roasted turkey that’s nice and moist. Granny Smith apples add crunchiness, their sweetness combining with that of the fig jam to be a good counterbalance to the Taleggio cheese. The cheese melts slightly on the fresh-baked, warm baguette, which is slathered with garlic aioli spread for extra zing. Each bite of the sandwich reveals the mingling of all the flavors.
