The history of the sandwich


John Montagu was an eighteenth century English aristocrat. He loved playing cards, and in 1762 he played a game of cards for 24 hours. He got hungry from time to time, so his cook brought him snacks of meat and cheese between slices of bread. That way Montagu could hold his cards in one hand and his food in the other hand. We call a snack of food between two slices of bread a “sandwich” because Montagu’s aristocratic title was the Earl of Sandwich. Nobody knows the name of Montagu’s cook, but he or she certainly invented a tasty winner!
