Sandwich Day

3 November

November 3rd is the birthday of John Montagu (3 November 1718 – 3 April 1792), who became the 4th Earl of Sandwich in 1729.

Popular myth credits him with having invented the sandwich.

Is it true, though? CooksInfo.com knows -- read our entry on sandwiches to learn all about the Earl and the history of sandwiches.

Reputedly, in America every year, 45 billion sandwiches are eaten each year (as of 2001.) Britain remains, though, the best place still to have a sandwich for variety, quality and value.

Have a sandwich today in honour of the day. If you normally have sandwiches every day, then make it a type of sandwich you rarely treat yourself to.
