Out of the Lunch Box: Chris Cosentino's Cheddar, Apple & Almond Sandwich

Out of the Lunch Box: Chris Cosentino's Cheddar, Apple & Almond Sandwich

Chris Cosentino's son eats everything from tripe to beef tartare, but a child's palate can be tough to please. Since the executive chef at San Francisco's Incanto restaurant is known for making anything taste good, we asked him to whip up a sandwich that would satisfy the lunch box crowd. The Chef vs. City star offered up a straightforward, five-ingredient recipe that is surprisingly (he owns the salumeria Boccalone) meat-free. Pack this delicious option up in your child's brown bag. It's bound to be the best thing he ever ate!
