    Yesterday I ate lunch at a small combination seafood market and restaurant called Heads and Tails. It is off Perkins Road near Essen on Silverside Dr. The muffaletta was by far the best I have ever had outside the Central Grocery in NOLA. I talked to the owner after I ate and he told me that the owner of Central Grocery had taught him how to make it.

    sounds good to me. i may have to check it out next time i am in br. (damn, now im hungry again.)

    speaking of muffaletta's this thread made me think of a recipe i ran across not long ago. the name muffaletta is in it, but it is NOT a muffaletta. it is a rachel ray recipe and i cant stand rachel ray. her voice is like nails on a chalk board to me, and this recipe doesnt do anything to win me over either....


    meatless muffaletta panini

    2 handfuls good quality pitted green and black olives
    1 cup giardiniera, drained pickled cauliflower, carrot and hot pepper mix
    4 sesame or cornmeal Keiser rolls, split
    8 deli cut slices sharp provolone
    1/2 roasted red pepper, drained and thinly sliced


    grilled, weighted and pressed, yada yada


    puleeze.....:rolleye33:
