The story of the sandwich indicates that it originated during the 6th century featuring thick blocks of coarse stale bread called trenchers, which was piled up with meat and other foods. However, traces also provide a core evidence that sandwiches were invented in England in 1762. The majority of food historians concur that John Montagu, often known as “the 4th Earl of Sandwich”, introduced the sandwich. Montagu had a reputation for being a compulsive gambler who required sandwiches brought to him at the gaming table so that he could keep playing while he ate. His position gave the hearty meal cachet, and soon it became popular in the European continent. Earlier sandwiches incorporated slices of meat and bread. Due to its ease of preparation, portability, and limitless diversity, the sandwich has now been adopted into almost every global cuisine.
