Ten years or so ago, most people would have shrugged if asked, "What is a Panini?" Now, everyone knows that a panini is an Italian pressed sandwich. Sort of like a fancier version of the all-American grilled cheese sandwich. Today, there’s even a whole month devoted to the celebration of the panini!

Speaking of pressed sandwiches, I’d like to recommend the film Chef, which is now out in theaters. It stars Jon Favreau as a disgruntled chef who leaves his stressful job and reluctantly takes a trip to Florida with his son. The tie-in to pressed sandwiches is when the Chef decides to take ownership of a food truck specializing in sandwiches, and drives it back home to California. It’s a fun, uplifting summer flick, which we’re sure to add to our collection when it is released on DVD!
