In 2014, in anticipation of the Blu-ray release of Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery, I did a series of Peaks-themed posts. Back then, the idea of David Lynch and Mark Frost returning with a third season of the show was…well, unthinkable. But here we are!
Starting with the premiere of season 3 on Showtime on May 21st at 9 PM, each week I will serve up a treat inspired by seasons 1 and 2. But as I go on, who knows what delights await us for the next 16 weeks!
Anyway, this post originally appeared on Dinner Is Served 1972 on July 8th, 2014….
I never intended for these Twin Peaks posts to be food-themed, but it makes sense since this is a food blog, and Twin Peaks is such a food-centric show.
Proof: this scene where for about 2 minutes Ben & Jerry Horne (yes, like the ice cream guys) wax poetic and chow down on some sandwiches that Jerry brought back from France.
Now, how exactly one would get cheese sandwiches through customs is beyond me; but let’s face it, Twin Peaks isn’t the most logical of fictional towns, now is it?
There are 3 ingredients:
Slice open Baguette. Spread with softened butter. Top with sliced Brie.
You can eat it as is, but I microwaved it a bit to get the cheese a little squishy.
Here is the sandwich–wrapped in wax paper, just like Jerry’s.
Since there are only 3 ingredients, the quality of said ingredients is important. But, since I was shopping at my Safeway, the quality wasn’t the best. But who cares? Cheese, bread and butter? Even the cheap stuff is delicious.
Seriously delicious. I think that if I was eating the really good French stuff, I’d be housing that baguette just like Ben & Jerry.
