Lunchtime was made merrier at Splash last week, when chef Vincent Colombet — along with his publicist, Liz Kores— dropped by with a basket full of French baguettes and delicious fillings. Colombet, the brains behind French bakery La Boulangerie, set up a station in the Splash intern area and whipped up baguette sandwiches such as The Spanish (serrano ham, manchego cheese, fig and almonds), the Caprese (greens, tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, housemade pesto, balsamic glaze and basil) and the Wisconsin (greens, grilled chicken, brie, apple butter and avocado).
We’ve found a new favorite lunch spot. Merci beaucoup, Liz and chef Vincent!
