    Ham and Brie Panini

    Panini are traditional Italian snacks. The combination of succulent fresh ham, pesto sauce and melted brie makes a quick and wholesome light lunch. One whole ciabatta may be used in place of the two half ciabatta. Instead of oak smoked ham try peppered or honey roast ham, all available on the service counter.
