The Goose Gang Guide: staff picks on what's honking hot this week (Jordan)

Jordan gets behind the counter at both Gooses (er, Geese?).

By day he helps the Smoking Goose team make meat treats and on evenings and weekends, he slices cheese & charcuterie for guests here at Goose the Market. That full schedule keeps him busy...and hungry.

That's why local Amelia's Focaccia is at the top of his list. Delivered to Goose the Market fresh each morning, "it's the only bread I eat sandwiches on," he says.

Jordan likes that the generous slab of herby bread dotted with bits of toasty cheese is easy to cut into four squares for four sandwich servings. "After cutting it in four, I cut each piece in half the long way for my sandwich top and bottom," he explains. "It's got so much flavor and is nice and soft."

Those filling focaccia sandwiches help keep up Jordan's strength between his two jobs but also between rides.

When he's not at either Goose, you might find him peddling Indy guests in his licensed pedicab. "We worked the Brickyard 400 and MotoGP," Jordan says. "We're getting a day permit so we can pedicab during the Chelsea/Inter game, too." Hmmm, with a focaccia & salumi sandwich in hand, Jordan's customers may just know which team he's rooting for!
