Make this large-format pan bagnat and feed your crowd in style.

San Francisco’s Tartine Bakery, cofounded by Elisabeth Prueitt and Chad Robertson, is renowned for its refined takes on the healthful, beautiful cuisine of France. Prueitt’s latest collection of recipes will be your go-to guide for nutritious dishes any time of day. Expanding your French repertoire? An authentic pan bagnat sandwich is a great place to start. 

Sandwiches are an uncommon treat for me, made only possible (given my sensitivity to gluten) when I have Chad’s bread, or any other bread made from a natural leaven. So when I’m making a sandwich, I want it to surpass all expectations. I want to satisfy not just one hunger, but the nostalgic hankering for all that a sandwich can be: a play of flavors and textures contained in each and every bite. It’s a tall order, but this sandwich delivers. This is a sandwich we found throughout the south of France, always enjoyed with a glass of rosé.
