Pairing of the Day: February 14-18, 2011
Silken tofu blended with lemongrass and lime juice is a terrific dairy-free stand-in for mayonnaise in this riff on the Vietnamese banh mi sandwich. Adam Erace sometimes makes the sandwich with local scrapple (a hash of pork scraps and trimmings combined with cornmeal and shaped into a log or loaf).
Pairing: Refreshing sparkling wine: NV Dibon Cava Brut Reserve.
