This Thursday, November 3rd, celebrates one of America's favorite lunch foods: the sandwich!
Story has it that the first sandwich was invented by a man named John Montagu, in 1762, when he asked his cook to prepare him a food that wouldn't interfere with the game he was playing. The cook brought him sliced meat in between to slices of bread, and behold! The first sandwich was born! The sandwich enabled him to eat with one hand and play the game with the other.
Fast forward 254 years, and the sandwich is a tasty part of everyday cuisine. It's a loved lunch staple in places all over the world!
