About the Sandwich:
My lunch on a backcountry ski trip to Thar Peak, which consisted of roasted chicken, pesto, and goat cheese, all happily stuffed inside a sesame focaccia.

About the sandwich:
Its always hard making a sandwich 7 hours before you’re gonna eat it. Soggy bread is just such a let-down. I’m a big fan of pickles too so I had to think long and hard about how to layer this baby. Anyhow in short this sandwich has pesto, pickles, reindeer salami, and slices of goats cheese carefully layered in lettuce to keep the bread dry. Norwegians know how to make good rye breads in particular but this bread was a bit average.
I’d already eaten my first sandwich on the climb up but saved this one for the top of the route – and what a sandwich it was!! and the view was ok too to enjoy whilst refueling for the descent.
Proud to be the first international addition to the club of alpine sandwiches!
