Description Description

The ultimate book for the sandwich connoisseur (or even the sandwich curious): nearly 100 recipes spanning the centuries, from the most well-known to obscure but delicious sandwiches. 

Ah, sandwiches. They’re everywhere. But what’s the story behind the club, the Cuban, or the hot brown? Through his various social media platforms, Barry Enderwick (@sandwichesofhistory) has been exploring all things sandwich for years. In Sandwiches of History: The Cookbook, for the first time, he has taken the source material for dozens of sandwiches and painstakingly recreated them—staying as faithful as possible to every original sandwich, while providing much more guidance on successfully making each one. From the classics, like the Cucumber Tea Sandwich or The Sophisticated Club Sandwich, to the out-of-the-box, like The Hot Chicken Tuna Sandwich and the Mock Banana Sandwich, Barry provides not only recipes, but interesting information and fun facts that pertain to them. Chapters and recipes include:

  • Tea and Snack Sandwiches: Tomato Sandwich, Nasturtium Leaves Sandwich, Smoked Salmon Sandwich, Lettuce Sandwich, Watercress Sandwich, Cucumber Sandwich, Salad Sandwich, Pineapple Cucumber Sandwich  
  • Club Sandwiches: Club House Sandwich, Sheridan Park Club Sandwich, Milwaukee Sandwich, Salmon Club Sandwich, Olive Bacon Club, Swiss Club Sandwich, The Club Special, The Sophisticated Club Sandwich, The New Manhattan Club Sandwich 
  • Surprising Sandwiches: Spanish Sandwich, Schmancy Ham Sandwich, BBQ Beef Sandwich, Toast Sandwich, Dairy Sandwich, Shrimp Sandwich, Hot Dog Sloppy Joe, Hot Chicken Tuna Sandwich
  • Vegetarian Sandwiches: Mushroom Sandwich, Picnic Sandwich, Gruyere Sandwich, East India Lentil Sandwich, Olive Sandwich, Bombay Sandwich, Waffled Cheesewich
  • International Sandwiches: Pan Bagnat (France), Chicken Banh Mi (Vietnam), Barros Luco (Chile), Rou Jia Mo (China), Tomago Sando (Japan), Carne Asada Torta (Mexico), Chip Buttie (UK), Membosha (Korea), Croque Monsieur et Madame
  • Open Faced and Sauced Sandwiches: Kentucky Hot Brown, Horseshoe Sandwich, Hot Dog Sandwich, Surprise Sandwich, Tomato Cheese Club Sandwich, Cheesy Cheesy Hamburger Sandwich, Sloppy Joe, Shrimp Club Sandwich, The ‘70s Special 
  • Sweet Sandwiches: Chocolate Sandwich Number 3, School Sandwich, Date and Orange Sandwich, Ginger Sandwich, Strawberry Sandwich, Peanut Butter and Cherry Sandwich, Mock Banana Sandwich WWII, Dusty Nuttergoose Sandwich

And that’s not all! Barry also includes his signature “plus ups” for taking good sandwiches and making them great, as well as a handful of full sandwich remixes. There’s an argument to be made that this is the greatest thing since, well, sliced bread.

Barry W. Enderwick has always had a thing for sandwiches. After all, there are endless possibilities as to what can be put between two slices of bread. One day, a friend happened upon a virtual copy of “The Up-To-Date Sandwich Book” of 1909. He sent it to Barry knowing he would get a kick out of it and commented that “it would be wild to try some of these sandwiches.” Barry couldn’t agree more. So he created a new social media account to explore sandwiches and never looked back. The idea resonated and the rest is history (or, actually, Sandwiches of History). Barry, an avid cook, now shares classic sandwiches, “plus ups,” and his own creations weekly. He has been featured in media outlets such as Gastro Obscura,, and the Guardian, to name a few. Find his latest creations at @sandwichesofhistory.
