Thanks to the new street food concept Le Pressing, the humble panini has been elevated from a cardboard-like carb-fest to a delectable toasted sandwich showcasing mouthwatering flavor combos in bread borne of superior French baking skills.
Chefs have collaborated with the venture to create a concise selection of gourmet panini recipes, to which they lend their names, featuring fresh, high-quality ingredients, prepared to order and served on top-notch bread from our favourite Paris baker, Gontran Cherrier. The menu changes with the seasons and currently features the salty-sweet Benjamin – aubergine dip, figs, basil and Fourme d’Ambert blue cheese on mixed-grain bread – or the simple, hearty John: ham, 12-month comté cheese, wholegrain mustard on white tradition bread.
Le Pressing is a street food style set up with no fixed address, instead moving around Paris to serve their handy and delicious sandwiches at various events and locations, including Wanderlust’s Joyeux Market, where we had the pleasure of devouring several of their hot toasty Benjamins (not a euphemism; see above) in December. For 2013, Le Pressing team continue to win over the public with a tour around different Paris hotspots.
