A Field Guide to the American Sandwich

Sandwiches are a very fine art which we happily partake in almost every day. They’re shrouded in mythology and folklore, varying widely from country to country. We in England often spurn a spurious tale of the Earl of Sandwich inventing said eatables but surely the sandwich is more primordial than that. How much variation can you get between just two slices of bread? Well as it turns out – a lot.

The New York Times have done a rather good (although probably not exhaustive… that would take a book) taxonomy of the American sandwich. Some of the varieties that they cover are lesser seen in London, so delis please take note. What’s a guy gotta do to get a decent clam roll round here?
