Start off by placing your bread slices on a tray and drizzle liberally with extra virgin olive oil and sea salt. You can either roast in a preheated oven at 200C until golden or toast on a griddle pan. You want to achieve a nice colour, some crunchiness and a soft inside.

To assemble the Red Pepper & Manchego Sandwich

Spread the sliced red peppers between 4 slices of bread. Grate the Manchego cheese liberally over the peppers. Top with two slices of anchovies on each slice of toast and finish off with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.

To assemble the Tomato & Sumac Sandwich

Slice the tomatoes and sprinkle with sea salt, extra virgin olive oil and wild sumac. Leave to rest at room temperature for around 5 minutes.

Heat the butter and olive oil and fry the egg to the desired doneness.

Place the tomatoes on the toasted bread. Top with the avocado slices, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and a sprinkle of sumac. Finish off with the fried egg, some more olive oil and another sprinkling of sumac.
