Waverly Market Delicacies to Beat the Heat

tomaneng | Aug 2, 2006 12:28 AM

Could not face cooking, even grilling in this heat so we stopped at Waverly Market and picked up some sandwiches and accoutrement.

Porchetta with Bruschetta Sandwich: Ample, thinly sliced, garlicky, house-made porchetta topped with a relish of tomato/onion, basil that sang summer flavors. Contained in a respectable italian sub roll. $6 and change.

Mixed Roasted Vegetable Sandwich: I'm going back to get another of these tomorrow. The same bread layered with sweet roasted red and yellow peppers, roasted carrots, marinated green beans, garlicky broccoli rabe and a perfectly breaded and fried slender eggplant steak. Heaven! Also $6 and change.

A Limonata and an Aranciata rounded out the meal and helped beat the heat. On the way out I picked up some house-made porcini mushroom ravioli to put in the freezer until cooking is once more a viable option. What a treasure this little shop is!
