A snippet from bottomlesskitchen.com: "...a fresh, Sourdough loaf that we purchased from a local Farmers’ market for $4. The sandwiches were good, much different from your typical white / wheat bread + pre-sliced cheese tuna melt. The olives & fennel pair very nicely with the tuna & bacon. It was a bit time consuming for a sandwich."
