If you’ve read our blog in the past, you know that at Cucina Mauro, we believe that food is so much more than just sustenance. Food brings us together, it stirs up emotions, and it creates memories. For us, nothing exemplifies that more than the classic veal sandwich, which is why we are so proud to have been nominated for Ontario’s best veal sandwich (www.ontariovealappeal.com, #bestvealsandwich).

Some of our earliest memories are of going for take-out veal sandwiches with our father, in Toronto.  It was always a treat! The delicious aroma and taste had our young mouths watering before the counter staff even handed over the goods.

Today, however, we treasure the memory of those veal sandwiches even more. Not only because they were delicious, but because we were being indoctrinated into a tradition, even though we didn’t know it then.  Before we were even around, our father would treat himself to veal sandwiches at some of the earliest shops around town after emigrating to Toronto from Calabria, Italy, when few people other than Italian immigrants were enjoying these beautiful creations. Once we were on the scene, the tradition continued, and we are proud to say that we are now passing on that same tradition to our own children.

That’s why we are honoured to be part of the tradition of veal sandwiches and why we are proud to have been nominated for Ontario’s best veal sandwich.  If you’ve tried our sandwich and you agree with us that it deserves the title of Ontario’s best veal sandwich, then we would be honoured to have your vote.  You can vote for us by clicking here  or by using the hashtag #bestvealsandwich and tagging @CucinaMauro on twitter or @cucina_mauro on Instagram.  THANKS!
