Veggie Sandwich Wins

A vegetarian sandwich beats out two meaty competitors to take first place in a national cooking contest.

The grand-prize winning sandwich at the second annual Mezzetta Make That Sandwich contest has been announced—and it's vegetarian! Ninette Holbrook of Orlando, Fla., took home the top honor for her open-faced, wine-braised fig and caramelized onion sandwich, beating the other two finalists, which both used meat. Mezzetta, a producer of peppers and olives, awards its grand-prize winners with $25,000 and a culinary trip and tour of Napa Valley. For Holbrook, who had never previously entered a cooking contest, it has been a whirlwind experience. While in California, she says that eating at famed veg-friendly restaurant The French Laundry is a top priority.
