The humble sandwich; filling British bellies in a convenient fashion since 1762. It was here that the idea for a sandwich was first conceived, attributed to one John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich, who wanted food served to him whilst he continued gambling.
An innovative chef thought to give him cold meat between two slices of bread. And so, the "sandwich" become popularised.
Today, on National Sandwich day, we celebrate this staple of fast food cuisine; for its versatility, for the ease of which it can be transported and consumed at any chosen location and the infinite possibilities regarding fillings.
As a nod to the sandwich, we have compiled this indulgent list of recipes provided by some of the best chefs on British soil 🥪🙌
