Sandwiches are wonderful because you don’t need a spoon or a plate. | 20 Images

A sandwich is a dish typically consisting of two or more slices of bread and may include any combination of ingredients. The bread can be buttered, toasted, grilled or have additional ingredients spread on it.

The earliest reference to the modern sandwich comes from an aristocratic woman in England that is believed to have made the first sandwich with two pieces of toast spread with butter and meat inside. Shopping for food was a task often performed for workers in towns such as Detroit, Michigan and Provo, Utah at the lunch break from their factory workplaces nearby. Workers would walk to the nearest place to obtain food, or they would buy sandwiches to bring home. It wasn’t until 1926 that the modern convenience store was introduced to America. Since then, sandwich chains have sprung up throughout the country as well as a vast number of national and regional companies.

Inventing the sandwich does not seem to have been a concerted effort by one individual; there are many theories about what the first sandwich actually was. Although it is certain that bread and meat were the components of a sandwich before this time, where they were situated on the bread and what type of bread was used, varies with each theory.

The earliest written record of a sandwich being made with pieces of bread and meat between them is from 1611, in a poem by Francis Ingelesthorpe, from “A Treatise on the Art of Cookery”. The treatise mentions “To make the softe Bread or Sandwiches” and gives instructions that the cook should use four slices of white bread per loaf: two slices should be cut off, buttered and placed together; then slices off the two remaining parts were also butterd and put togither.

In 1834, a man named John Montagu published “Memoirs of Earl of Sandwich”. This book documents his experience of asking for something to be brought to him at the card table; somebody was sent to the kitchen, who then returned with a piece of meat wrapped between two pieces of bread. He named the dish after himself and that is why it is called “the” sandwich, because he created it.

The Earl’s personal chef, Richard Baker, is also reputed to have invented the sandwich in 1762 when he was presented by his employer with a slice of cold meat between two slices of bread during a hunting trip (the Earl had not brought proper food with him and was hungry).
