I have had many sandwiches, but never has it sparked my curiosity, until today, as I drove home with my wife, thinking sandwich for dinner. I wondered if someone lazy made the first sandwich, I had to find out, and here is the facinating story of sandwiches:
According to wikipedia, John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich is credited with creating a sandwich, and the name was derived from his title. It was long said that he invented the food to sustain himself while gambling without having to eat a full meal; he would never leave his seat at his gambling table and when compelled to eat, asked his servants to bring him a piece of cold meat between two slices of bread. And that is the story behind a sandwich, and now you know it too.
