The Efren at Big Bottom

Efren loves the Efren

What does County Supervisor Efren Carrillo taste like? Crunchy, toasty and garnished with a pickle and melty cheese. In other words, delish.

The It-Guy Politico has been the first local celebrity immortalized with a sandwich at Big Bottom Market in Guerneville. Hot off the grill, it’s a hearty Cubano stuffed with Zoe’s Meats Black Forest Ham, Cajun Turkey Breast, Alexander Valley Pickles, jack cheese and Sweet Hot Mendocino Mustard.

“When I was younger I always hoped, like every other kid in the world, that some day my name would endorse something remarkable,” said Supervisor Carrillo. “While I fully expected it to be sports-related I must say that a sandwich, especially one prepared with products that have been locally sourced through some extraordinary artisan suppliers from Northern California, is certainly the next best thing.”

Meet up with Efren at the market August 26, 2011 at 6:30pm when he and local producers of the sandwich ingredients will be celebrating the sammie. Want something to wash it down? BiteClub recommends the cucumber soda if you’re driving or the Enkidu Humbab Rhone Blend if you’re not.

Big Bottom Market: 16228 Main St., Guerneville.

    Effren needs to work in the ” the Real world” a little longer before he can effectively lead the people

    Well deserved! Effren really represents our County well and I hope to see him go further into politics as he really seems to care for the community and he loves good food!

    Efren I would love to see you run for Governor of California … best of luck…your sandwich is one of my favorites. Miami makes a mean version.

    Celebrating local artisan food producers sounds like a lovely event.

    Is there any significance to substituting turkey for pork in the Effren?

        urket and ham — that’s wonderful but in the original cubano

        there is roast pork and ham — pork on pork

    I remember Efren personally coming to my house in Roseland when he was just running for supervisor. It made a big impression on me that he chose to personally meet his constituents. I have been reading about him in the news and hope that he keeps fighting the good fight! :)
