Inspired by Margaret Eby's love of Zabar's in New York City, the combination of creamy, silky Taleggio and nutty aged Gruyère cheeses in these small but decadent sandwiches results in the perfect melt, with plenty of flavor. Pops of fresh salinty from lightly smashed capers stirred into sweet, jammy strawberries balance the richness. Use Tiptree Little Scarlet Strawberry Preserves for the ultimate version of this sandwich—it is made from tiny, sweet strawberries. You can find it at Zabar's or online at brandsofbritain.com.

This recipe is based on the one my Irish mother learned in school, thanks to the cooking textbook All in the Cooking. It’s about as simple as bread gets—four ingredients, one bowl, about five minutes to bring together and less than an hour in the oven. If you love soda bread, it’s worth seeking out Irish flour like Odlum’s or King Arthur’s Irish-Style Flour, since that contributes to the taste, but any all-purpose flour will work fine here.
