The sandwich became first known as a portable finger food in the Western world, gaining quickly popularity and spreading worldwide.

It is considered to have been created and named by John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich, and it is, according to The Wall Street Journal, “Britain’s biggest contribution to gastronomy”.
The sandwich as we know it today can be traced back to 18th century Europe but few people realize that the use of bread (or a bread-like substance) as some kind of base or cover, or to scoop up food, dates way back in history and can be found in a lot of older cultures all over the world.
Nowadays we can find all kinds of sandwiches, made of different breads and filled with different things.

These changes brought us the hamburger, for example, but it is important to remember where it all started. That is why we call the sandwich “the father of all fast food”.
