British Sandwich Week
took place between 12-19 May 2013 and was a great opportunity to celebrate
the one of our best loved fast foods! – the British sandwich.
It is thought that the humble sandwich was 'invented' by the 4th Earl of Sandwich. A keen gambler, he didn't like to leave the gaming table - so rather than breaking for dinner while the game was in full swing, he asked that he was brought some meat between two slices of bread - and this was the birth of a great fast food which became known as a sandwich.
