Say (almost) anything #145. Celebrate Sandwich Day! What's your favorite?

Photo #1 from New York City, USA by Escape made on 2018-11-03 15:44 for Sola

There is a commonly known story about the history of the word sandwich, and it’s attributed to John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich. One piece of that history that’s rarely discussed is the meaning of the word Sandwich and the town it comes from. Sandwich is a city in the shire of Kent in England, originally the word was spelled Sondwic, and then Sandwic, and ultimately in 1086 as Sandwice. The name of the town came from its purpose and its claim to fame, it was a market town. So what does Sandwich actually mean? “Market Town on Sandy Soil”.

John Montagu was the 4th Earl of this town, a royal title that essentially means ‘chieftain’ and placed them in charge of a territory in the King’s stead. John was a well a known lover of card games, and it’s said he originally ordered his meat to be delivered to him between two slices of bread so that he would not get his grease laden fingers on the card, nor require a fork to eat.

As people heard of this, they started ordering their food “The Same as Sandwich”, and eventually just “a sandwich”. From such things are legendary culinary delights born. Sandwich Day celebrates both the Earl himself, and the wonder he brought to us in the form of the sandwich.

Any cold cuts with provolone and a little spicy mustard. Just a little though, and not on the cheese side. Maybe add a few thin cucumber slices for crunch. Seedless rye.

Gesithan
Steph, agreed that you shouldn't put the sauces on the cheese side! It turns the cheese into a frictionless membrane

Escape 🎃, the pastrami sandwiches in the motion picture "Prime" (2005) look tremendously delicious. I never had the real thing, but I guess these ones might be the only sandwiches I'd like to eat.
EscapeAuthor
Pastrami is wonderful if it's properly made. There's a deli nearby where I get pastrami and salami on club occasionally.
Yoyo
I tried to make pastrami sandwiches at home and never tried again, because I didn't manage to make the magic happen. "Pastrami" and "nearby" sounds great, Escape :-)
