Got a hankering for a Kentucky Hot Brown? A serious need for a Navajo Taco? Craving an authentic Florida Cuban? Then this is the cookbook for you! You can thank John Montagu, the Fourth Earl of Sandwich, for its invention, though he probably wasn't the first guy to put stuff between two pieces of bread. No matter who created it, the sandwich is still the king of food in America. We eat more than 45 billion sandwiches per year, with the average person consuming 193 sandwiches annually! That's a lot of mustard! From Po'Boys to Lobster Rolls, Buffalo Burgers to Muffalettas, Becky Mercuri has a recipe for every sandwich imaginable, and a location in each region where you can find the real thing. Or, fix up a mess of your favorite regional sammies without ever leaving the comfort of your own kitchen! Learn about the history of the sandwich, the birth of Wonder Bread, the influence of immigrant flavors and foods, and the origins of each unique regional specialty sandwich in this affordable little American culinary road trip.
