About the sandwich:
Quilotoa is a water-filled caldera in a volcano in Ecuador that lies at around 3,400 m above sea level. Legend has it that gods used to fight for control of the mountain, destroying everything around it, and ultimately leaving the volcano in its present form. Little did I know the real battle would be in my taste buds!

About the sandwich:
We were conflicted about this sandwich. The Deliberate Nomad sandwich typically also includes avocado. After walking over 9 kilometers and 360 flights of stairs up (according to FitBit), we were agast to discover our avocado was *not* fresh, and therefore didn’t qualify for the sandwich. In a fit of pique, the chef angrily hurled the avocado across the alpine meadow, causing an upending. Our dog (Painau), who was attached to me, lunged for the delicious (to him) morsel, tumping my off my soft grass tuffet and sending me tumbling tip over tail. Luckily I avoided the snow-fed water and lived to eat this delicious fresh brie (purchased from the Samatan farmers market on Monday), fresh tomato (also from Samatan market), and fresh baguette (baked that morning by a kind, sturdy woman in Luchon). The sandwich is best made “in situ”, with pocket knife and cutting board of any convenient rock (or dirt, if necessary). Cut, assemble, and eat the best sandwich you’ve ever had, based on the fact that you’re already exhausted, overheated, and famished!!

Location: Mt. Sutton summit
About the sandwich:
This sandwich is absolutely everything a hiker need to withstand a day in the Appalachian. A multi grain fresh bread is used as support for the veggie paté. The fresh cheese adds more protein to the mix. Humus gives the moisture and the crispy spinach leaves complete the top level of this club sandwich. The view was so great this day! Eating this sandwich on this summit made this moment unforgettable!
