Name Capital Ale’s Sandwich Invitational Entry

By Susan Larson

Capital Ale House Fredericksburg Sous Chef Sean Patrick Duffie has his recipe ready for the July 31 FXBG Sandwich Invitational, but the sandwich doesn’t yet have a name.  He’s open to suggestions.

The sandwich is a play on the restaurant’s successful Salmon and lox combination, Duffie said.  “I wanted to make a nice, lite, colorful summer sandwich,” he said.

“I actually built a double-barrel smoker in the kitchen and I smoked egg bagels, so that they have a real smoky, sharp flavor.  I whipped up some cream cheese with dill, chive and lemon.  I have some smoked salmon on there.  We’re Virginia centric with our food, so the vegetables on it — the English cucumbers and the tomatoes — are local.  I will finish it with alfalfa sprouts at the competition.”

“It’s a lot of work, but it’s fun,” Duffie said.  “I think it’s neat for all the restaurants to come together like this.  I hope I beat them all!”

If you have a name suggestion for the sandwich, email [email protected].

The FXBG Sandwich Invitational will be held 6 – 8 p.m. in Hurkamp Park at William Street and Prince Edward Street. Tickets are $25 per person and include sample-size sandwiches from all 13 participating restaurants and beverages.  Ashleigh Chevalier and her band will be providing live music and there will be a free photo booth by Owik Pics.

Tickets are available at the Fredericksburg Visitors Center, 706 Caroline St.

Capital Ale will also be participating in Restaurant Week August 1 – 10.  Their sample menu is online.
