LONDON – If there were a sandwich standoff between American classics and what’s to be had here in England, Britain would reign victorious. Comparisons trigger ideas for quality improvement on our side of the plate.
For starters, cold sandwiches are the leading menu choice here at business meetings and for anyone on the go. You can find fast food burgers if you search, but they don’t dominate the sandwich scene like they do back home.
And unlike in France, where baguettes rule, sandwiches in England are familiar squares made with loaf bread. That’s where their similarity with American sandwiches ends, however.
One striking difference is the wide variety of creative and healthy choices. These sandwiches have personality.
