Hi, I'm Chef Charlie Ayers, owner of Calafia Cafe in Market A Go Go in Palo Alto, California. Today, I'm going to show you how to make awesome panini sandwich. We have ciabatta. We have a hemp seed pumpkin pesto, locally made goat cheese, mozzarella, wild arugula and a red onion marmalade. Whenever you make a panini sandwich, you want to make sure your grill is nice and hot and wiped down of any foreign degree, any foreign debris, excuse me. At the restaurant we make our sandwiches ahead of time before each shift so we can get them quickly to the table. As you see it has the goat cheese, arugula, red onion marmalade and hemp seed pesto. You want to close the lid down lightly on your press and allow it to naturally weight down the sandwich. This will take anywhere between three to five minutes on a pre-heated panini press. Once the sandwich is done, you're going to cut it on a bias. You can cut it into halves, thirds, quarters, any way you'd like, a panini sandwich. I'm Chef Charlie Ayers, owner of Calafia Cafe and Market A Go Go in Palo Alto, California.
