Bresaola, Gorgonzola, and Pear Tartine
Bold yet delicate, this open-faced sandwich borrows its rustic ingredients from a popular and classic flavor pairing found in trattorie around Italy. We’d like to be there right now, actually, sitting outside, enjoying the views with a crisp glass of white…So good, it should be an American classic, too.
