Bread again…The rise of the sandwich is inseparable from its convenience, from its ability to be consumed quickly and neatly while doing something else…Because a sandwich is a blank slate, it can be perfectly evocative of its time and place…The sandwich and the occasion intertwine…In the dance-off between sandwiches and lived experience, it is often the sandwich we remember best.”
