May 2020, a pandemic coursing through the planet’s population, and we, missing our friend’s faces and all things in 3 D, we attempt  social distancing hoping  to ease  into a return to we know not what?

I am seeing small groups of friends in our spacious parks socially distancing as they munch picnic foods. Set-up  a camp chair in a 6′ socially distanced circle,  bring  a sandwich, share a story, a smile, and some laughs then scurry back to our common state of social isolation and the monotony of the flat screen.

I’m not saying making a  pb&j while living in a pandemic feels  relaxing or delightful or even pleasant.  I am saying that creating a sandwich and inviting 2-3 friends to socially distance (our latest verb?) at a town park among the oaks and maples and lindens settles the stress and briefly lifts the sadness.

In May 2020 Buzz Savories celebrates  Sensational Sandwich Chefs – Andy Anello’s Sensational Spicy Rustic Italian, Bob and Shirley Butz’s – Exotic Pheasant on Naan and John Herhahn’s grilled Reuben on Rye.

Each home-style chef incorporated Spicy Beer Mustard or Buzz Savories Honey Mustard into their recipe.

Andy Anello, trained as a grill chef in his college days, constructs a handsome sandwich and tastefully combines his favorite sandwich-makings – salami, pepper jack cheese, pepperoncini and other ingredients.

Andy Anello’s Sensational Spicy Italian

Bob Butz hunts upland game with his hunting dog, Harley.  His skillful hunting fills their freezer with tender and flavorful pheasant breasts.  No worry for you and me.  We cannot access pheasant easily although we can pick-up chicken breasts at our local grocery.  The dressing adds plenty of flavor so enjoy the sandwich warm with chicken breasts, naan and the honey/Spicy Beer Mustard/curry powder dressing.

John Herhahn, of German heritage and a master with sauerkraut and ham and rye builds a satisfying sandwich  with every melt-in-your-mouth bite.
