People love sandwiches. We like all types — two slices of bread, filled pita pockets, rolled flatbread, and open-faced sandwiches. Canapes (tiny finger sandwiches) are popular again. Where did sandwiches come from? The sandwich was invented by way of a British nobleman, John Montague, the Fourth Earl of Sandwich. In line with the Open Sandwich Website, he was an awful gambler. Round the seventeenth century, legend has it that Montague asked a waiter to bring him cold roast beef between two slices of bread to avoid getting his cards greasy. The Food Reference Website describes Montague as a “notorious gambler, running from pub to another.” His lifestyle left short amount of time for eating, the site goes on to state, and that is why he ordered meat between two slices of bread. Since then, people around the world have enjoyed sandwiches. People had open-faced sandwiches in Copenhagen, Denmark. The artistic sandwiches, garnished with tiny sprigs of watercress and chopped egg, were so beautiful I was hesitant to cut them. Open-faced sandwiches and canapes are labor-intensive.
