Recipe For Smoked Turkey and Parmesan Sandwich on Focaccia

'Wich of the Week: Turkey-Parm Focaccia

It's been a while since I've visited Estela's Fresh Sandwiches, one of my favorite sandwich destinations in San Francisco. But when I found out a friend of mine is moving, I insisted that she simply couldn't leave the city without ever having gone to Estela's.
