Sandwich book Tue, 07/26/05 10:42 PM (permalink)
I just bought the most interesting book, called "American Sandwich" by Becky Mercuri, Gibbs Publisher, $12.95.
Each 2-3 pages are devoted to a a different state (50 in all) with sandwich recipes and blurbs about the cuisine of that state. Also, an "American Sandwich Timeline"
For example:
Alaska: Halibut Burgers
Georgia: Pimento Cheese Sandwich
Iowa: Loosemeat Sandwich
Louisiana: Muffaltta
Maine: Lobster Rolls
Maryland: Stuffed Ham Sandwich
Minnesota: Fried Walleye Sandwich
Mississippi: Catfish Po-Boy
Montana: Buffalo Burger
Nebraska: Cheese Frenchie
New Jersey: Pork Roll Sandwich
New York: Reuben
North Dakota: Fleischkuechle (?????)

You get the idea...
This here book's a good read!!!

    That sounds like a cool book! Is there anything better than a sandwich?
    I wonder, do they have texas for pulled pork and kentucky for hot browns.
    Also, what is the sandwich for Ohio? I'm from Cleveland, wonder if it's kielbasa and kraut, or lake erie perch.

      OK:
      Texas:Pan Fried Sirloin/Chicken-Fried Steak
      Kentucky:The Hot Brown (you guessed it...)
      Ohio: The Hippo (huh? says ingredients include roast-beef, american or swiss cheese, tomato, ham, lettuce, cholestrol-free mayonnaise - don't ask - toasted bread - AND - extra long toothpicks!

          PA?
          "The Original Pat's King of Steaks Philadelphia Cheese Steak"

          PS. This book says it is based on a PBS program, "Sandwiches You Will Like" by Rick Sebac ("Who also brought you A Hot Dog Program and An Ice Cream Show). A DVD is available on the sandwich show...Don't know this series

                Tiki, I remember that now! that's a shame about the pork,though.
                You know, that Ohio sandwich is not too far off, we do eat a ton of italian style subs, salami, pepperoni, ham, provolone and swiss, with plenty of thinly sliced tomato, onion and lettuce. And italian dressing of course. All our pizza joints offer these hot or cold.
                very yummy.

                  Indiana is represented with the deep fried breaded pork tenderloin sandwich in this book.

                    Maybe wanderingjew would know this, but I have to say the most delicious chicken salad sandwich I ever had was in Rhode Island...apparently, there is a company that not only makes this sublime chicken salad, but also does pot pies, too.
                    Anybody know the name of the supplier? I think it's local to the Providence area.

                        For the record, Rhode Island's sandwich in the book, AMERICAN SANDWICH, is the Clam Roll. It is battered fried clams on a hotdog bun with tartar sauce. In my three years living in Newport, RI I never had one.

                              See, now that surprises me, I thought that Massachusetts would claim the Clam Roll. I think that the Italian Grinder would have been an appropriate choice for Rhode Island.

                                I'm in Ohio, ( Michigan border state) and I can support the Pastie. My mom made these a lot when we were growing up, it's a mixture of beef and pork cubes, onions, potato, parsnip and / or rutabaga enclosed in a flaky pastry and baked until the meats were tender and the crust was brown. It's a Welsh/English thing. They're delish, however.

                                  The Massachusetts sandwich is the Banh Mi, a Vietnamese Sub. Now this one I do not understand at all in a state so steeped in history. I doubt you'll find them as local fare in many restaurants. The author probably relied on input from a few sources for many of the states and just simply missed.

                                    Even in Michigan you really have to go to the Upper Peninsula to start finding pasties in quantity because they derive from the Welsh mining traditions and the UP is where the mining industry is. Once there you can't miss them because there are small shops that sell nothing but pasties on the highway. I have made the Midland/Saginaw to Minneapolls and vice versa family visit road trip via the UP numerous times over the years. We always stop for pasties.

                                                      I have lived in Mass for 35 years and have never seen one of these anywhere, what is it?

                                                          Could the whole thing about the Banh Mi sandwich be a misprint?


                                                          BTW, What's Virginia's sandwich?

                                                            Not a misprint. I guess the author could not find a true native sandwich for Massachusetts and decided to throw it into an available slot. It kind of wrecks the premise of the book to do that.

                                                            Virginia's sandwich is a smoked turkey and country ham salad sandwich.
