Cheese and Corn Open Sandwich

Did you know? “Sandwich” the most common fast food item got its name during the late hours one night in 1762 in London. John Montagu, the Fourth Earl of Sandwich (A town in the country of Kent, England), was playing cards. He was too engrossed in the game that he didn’t want to stop, even for food. Thus, he ordered a waiter to bring him roast beef between two slices of bread. This made it easy for him to handle both, food as well as his game. This small but interesting incident gave birth to a very popular food item of world – sandwich.
