James May, being born in 1963, had his late childhood swamped by 70s cuisine, and as we all know now, he’s a bit of a foodie. The man likes his food and drink, so it’s no surprise that he’s started FoodTribe to celebrate this love.
In a bid to promote the site, he’s started a series of videos in which he makes food of low value, but high quality, starting with a staple lunch from his childhood: the salad sandwich.
The ingredients consist of white bread, lettuce, cucumber, onions and tomatoes. The butter must be margarine, and to finish it off, a layer of salad cream to add some flavour. Standard. Alongside it, James has chosen a Californian red wine.
