Last year, 13 faculty members answered that question by crafting their own culinary creations as part of dining services’ new Faculty Sandwich Series. Each sandwich was featured for two weeks exclusively in The Quarry, starting with Professor of American Studies and Women’s, Gender & Sexuality Studies Amy Farrell’s smoked cheddar, cucumber, avocado spread and onion sandwich on sourdough bread and wrapping up with Associate Professor of Italian and Film Studies Nicoletta Marini- Maio’s classic Italian bruschetta sandwich with tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil and olive oil on ciabatta bread.
“The series brought some excitement to the regular menu and gave us a glimpse into the tastes and interests of the featured faculty members,” says Emily Smith, lead supervisor of retail operations.
The series picked up in September with the fall 2015 favorite, Associate Professor of International Business & Management David Sarcone’s Italian “Sangweech” followed by the spring 2016 favorite, Associate Professor of American Studies Jerry Philogene’s caprese-style sandwich.
“We brought these two sandwiches back by popular demand so our customers can enjoy them one last time,” Smith says. Up next and the first new sandwich of the fall was a classic lox and bagel creation by interim President Neil Weissman.
