The kitchen staff at Caffè Sole have been hard at work throughout the pandemic, preparing more than 6,000 meals for Sister Carmen Community Center in Lafayette to help the agency feed those in need. The Caffè staff is back making food for customers as well, and this week we tried the prosciutto and brie sandwich. Piles of cured, dried and thinly sliced ham make up the bulk of this meal, but the brie cheese brings a certain zest to each bite, while the date jam (spread on both sides of the Italian bun) brings sweetness and the caramelized onions add a little crunch. Just knowing that Caffè is committed to continuing its Sister Carmen food drive as long as food insecurity remains an issue in Boulder County makes the food that much more satisfying.
