Paul McCartney has shared the secrets of how his perfect sandwich comes together – a Marmite, hummus, cheese and honey mustard bagel in which the fillings are separated by protective layers of lettuce.
Speaking to the comedian Romesh Ranganathan, the former Beatle revealed the meticulous process he uses to make the snack during a conversation about new cookbook Linda McCartney’s Family Kitchen.
그는 말했다: “I do a very good sandwich. I take a bagel, I cut it in three. Often you have two bagels, so now you cut it into six. So you’ve got a top and a bottom, a top and a bottom, and two middles. You can get three sandwiches out of that.”
McCartney then explained how he adds protective layers to preserve the bagel’s structural integrity.
“So the bottom layer I put Marmite on and then I would put a little bit of lettuce, because I’m going to put hummus on but it’s going to go through the hole if I don’t put lettuce on. You might get a little sliced cheese on there, you might have one slice of tomato, then you might have a little pickle or two. Then you go back to your lettuce barrier, because there’s another hole on the top remember, so you’ve got to protect it from that. Then I put on honey mustard.”
His daughter, Mary McCartney, a photographer, filmmaker and food writer, added: “In a McCartney sandwich we are not afraid of a condiment.”
Paul McCartney was joined by his other daughter, the fashion designer Stella, to promote the recently published cookbook of family recipes.
