i had to do a research project for school, so of course i did it on #sandwiches.
during my research i discovered a lot of interesting facts and stories, but one of my favourites was the many different versions of the tale of john montagu, the fourth earl of sandwich. he has been painted as a notorious gambler, a hapless inventor, but was really a powerful & prominent politician, whose title coined the name of my favourite meal.
in his honour, i recreated the sandwich he loved so much, the sandwich that launched a thousand sandwiches!
he was a complex man with simple desires, it is said he liked roast beef in between two slices of bread with english mustard and horseradish and that’s exactly what i did here. simple, but hearty and delicious.
thank you john montagu for all you did for us sandwich lovers out there.
also thank you @acmemeatmarket for the rump roast and thank you @farrowsandwiches for the delicious bread.
