Personal Notes:
This recipe came from Oprah's magazine in November 2004. Margaux Sky owned a restaurant in California called the Art Cafe and Bakery. Oprah tried the sandwich and declared it the best she had ever tasted. The article discussing food claims it is soul-soothing. Well, I tried it at home and even made my own challah bread, which, since I don't bake, is a big deal. It was great. Now..Tim didn't love this sandwich..he's not a big curry fan which you must be to like this one. I, however, thought it was fabulous. The bread makes it though, so be sure to use challah.
