British Sandwich Week

British Sandwich Week is a week-long event held annually in May and is a true celebration of, perhaps the original easy carry food to go and quite possibly the most iconic British culinary invention, the Sandwich.

I mean, since the first bread was introduced it’s likely that people have been eating meats and/or vegetables on or in! More than likely, but what did they ask for in the morning? It took a card-playing nobleman to get us to the sandwich that we know today...
The modern sandwich is so named after Lord John Montague, the 4th Earl of Sandwich. The story has it that the Lord Sandwich was a dedicated gambler and distained from having to take time away from the gaming tables to have a meal. Accordingly he would ask casino waiters to bring him slices of meat between two slices of bread; a habit well known among his gambling friends. Others at the table soon realised that Lord Montagu was onto a good thing with his tasty treats that they soon began to order "the same as Sandwich!" and the sandwich was so named.
