Popularised in England in 1762 by British statesman, John
Montagu, the modern sandwich combines bread with spreads, meats,
cheeses, fruits, vegetables, and other foodstuffs to form a
wholesome, hearty and flavour packed brunch, lunch or dinner
option. From its portability and ease of eating to the array of
incredible flavour combinations that it can make, the humble
sandwich may have to be one of the greatest food inventions ever to
have been created.
In the UK we spend over £8.2 billion each year buying
sandwiches, but the best ones have to be homemade! We honour the
ever-popular sandwich with our favourite recipes and top tips,
taking inspiration from all over the globe to help you ensure
you're lunching the right way.
