It’s a fact that, even if something is good on its own it will almost always be better when you add bread and toppings to make it more enjoyable.
National Sandwich Day celebrates them all
A common story is about the history and origins of sandwich. It’s said to have been told by John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich. The meaning of the word Sandwich, and where it came from, is one piece of this history that has been lost.
Sandwich is a city located in the shire Kent, England. Because it was a market place, the name of the town derives its origins. What does Sandwich actually refer to? “Market Town on Sandy Soil” is the exact definition.
John Montagu was the fourth Earl in charge of this small English town. An earl was a title of royal rank that meant ‘chieftain’. It placed the individual in charge over a territory under the King. John was well-known for his love of card games. He ordered his meat to arrive between two slices bread to ensure that his grease-laden hands wouldn’t get on the card and that he didn’t need a fork. Genius!
People started to order their food “The Same As Sandwich” and then “A Sandwich”. These are the ingredients that lead to legendary culinary delights.
Although historians believe that Edward Gibbon was the first to mention a sandwich in recorded records, it is likely that the history of the sandwich dates back further. The sandwich is a basic food that has existed since the time humans ate bread.
Some historians believe it dates back to the first century BC when Hillel, a Jewish Rabbi, was known for putting lamb, herbs, and nuts between two slices of bread. It isn’t called “Hillel” today after the rabbi. It is called a “sandwich” after the earl, who arrived several hundred years later.
So, National Sandwich Day is a celebration of both the Earl, who was the inspiration for this food, and the wonder that he brought to the world with the invention of the sandwich.
