Video: How to Make Caramelized Peach Tramezzino


Seasonal chef Maria Reina says she was inspired by her time in Italy, when she’d go out to little neighborhood bars that would serve nibbles.

“Not just tiny bowls of pretzels and nuts,” she says. “The bites could range from slices of cheese and olives to foccacia topped with all sorts of ingredients. But in particular they served something called ‘tramezzino’ (tramezzini is the plural). These tasty little crust-less sandwiches come in many varieties, tuna being the most popular.”

For her little sandwiches, she combined peaches and a savory bell pepper spread, then topped each with a thin smoky slice of speck and crunch of almond.

“I like taking sweet things and making them savory,” she says. “I think peaches and bell peppers are a great combination, so I thought why not turn them into an Italian-inspired bite?”
