We love tartines. Even more so, we love tartines made with homemade bread and gorgeous ingredients. Josephine’s petite sandwiches have us ready to whip out the picnic-ware and hit the road. These are perfect for sophisticated alfresco dining or an exceptional lunch, and could easily be a star appetizer. The bread was made by and recipes tested under the skillful eye of NYC based micro-baker Jeremy Shapiro. -Amy 

We wanted to make tartines with seasonal ingredients, so we purchased everything at the Union Square Market in Manhattan on the very morning of our photo-shoot. Micro-baker Jeremy Shapiro thoughtfully spent the night before preparing breads that he believed would pair perfectly with our recipes, using grains from local farmers. Even our meats were purchased from a local deli in Queens!

Instead of firm measurements, our recipes emerged organically, using handfuls of this or scatterings of that. The creativity is in your hands. With good bread and fresh ingredients, you simply can’t go wrong.
