INGREDIENTS

Fennel and Olives
½ fennel bulb, very thinly sliced
½ cup mixed pitted olives, chopped
¼ cup olive oil
3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons chopped drained capers
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Assembly

1 Persian or ¼ English hothouse cucumber, thinly sliced
2 6.7-ounce cans olive oil–packed tuna, drained
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 12-inch-long ciabatta loaf, halved lengthwise
3 hard-boiled large eggs, peeled, sliced
2 cups arugula

RECIPE PREPARATION

Fennel and Olives
Toss fennel, olives, oil, vinegar, capers, and red pepper flakes in an airtight container or resealable plastic bag; season with salt and pepper.

Assembly

Toss fennel-olive mixture with cucumber and tuna in a medium bowl; season with salt and pepper. Let sit, tossing occasionally, 10 minutes.

Scoop out inside from top half of bread; discard (or save for a snack!). Layer bottom half of bread with tuna mixture, then top with eggs and arugula. Close up sandwich.

Place a large heavy skillet or pot on top of sandwich to weigh down and let sit at room temperature, turning once, until evenly pressed, about 2 hours (if making sandwich at home, or storing in a cooler while you hike, wrap it up tightly in plastic wrap before you press it).

Slice pan bagnat into wedges just before serving.

Wet flat bread is completely different.

Mischka

@me55 -- Thank you. I was wondering, but didn't get around to looking it up.

@msbonne -- That may have fallen flat.

msbonne

here, we call it "wet bread"

me55

"pan bagnat" in the Venetian dialect (along most of the Alps too) means "wet bread"

msbonne

So, you had your male servant wait on you. Good job. What did you have him do?

Donnajames

We see the doctor on the 23rd....

Mischka

Oh dear! :-) I hope you'll get the results soon.

Donnajames

I'm back!! They told me it would take about an hour so I went down the hill to Lowes to wander around while I waited. Just started heading back up when the phone rang and he was done....it only took 10 minutes. I had left my phone in the car by mistake and he had been calling and calling!!! Payback is he**!!!! It was HIS turn to wait on me!

msbonne

Avoid the Fennel cake.

Donnajames

Well off to get the rest of hubby's test done at our other hospital! I hope these are not as long as the others!!!!! Talk to you later.

Mischka

Ooh, I'm all for a Jigidi committee!

Donnajames

I think we need to assemble a committee to determine if Hoff is right!

Mischka

Frame-by-frame analysis reveals that Hoff is right.

msbonne

THAT is NOT a fennel cake.

Mischka

Where am I? WHO am I?

Donnajames

They just threw those in to get us more confused than we normally are!!!!!

Mischka

Yep. Why not? They're not using the salami either.

Donnajames

Could be smoked salmon.

Mischka

I think that's the tuna, though you so rarely see it so orange.

Donnajames

As an appetizer??? There is also something that looks like smoked fish in that tin!

Mischka

I'm not familiar with fennel. And if these are tuna sandwiches, why is the sliced sausage there?

Donnajames

This sounds pretty good, except I am not much of a fennel fan...it has a licorice flavor that I don't care for. The rest sounds great!
