Monday Books | National Sandwich Month


Things have come a long way since the Earl.

Corned Beef Sandwich _ The Old Salty Dog (Sarasota, FL)

I can’t think of many things that are as versatile as the sandwich. The variations are too numerous to even imagine. Everything from an American cheese on white to the famous Dagwood multi layer monster. There really is no limit to what you can put between two (or three or four) slices of bread.

The month of August is a celebration of sandwiches. It’s National Sandwich Month. The humble sandwich has risen in prestige high enough to warrant a whole month. Not a day or even a week mind you. But, an ENTIRE month. That’s certainly food clout.

I thought it would be appropriate, at the beginning of this august August observation to give you some resources that will help you celebrate in style. The sandwiches that you will be able to construct using any of the cookbooks below would make even the Earl himself jump for joy. Here, here!
