The Naming of the Sandwich

The sandwich manual
The Sandwich Manual

  • Louis P. De Gouy published Sandwich Manual for Professionals in 1940

  • He was a chef at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel

  • The book describes the assembly of hundreds of sandwiches organized into specific categories


  • The unifying theme of a sandwich is that it is a tasty filling served on bread or in a similar wrapper

  • Styles of sandwiches:

    • Cold sandwiches

    • Hot sandwiches, including grilled

    • Finger and tea sandwiches

Sandwich elements bread
Sandwich Elements: Bread

  • Characteristics of the bread and how they will fit in with the sandwich should be considered

  • Bread should be firm enough and thick enough to hold the filling but not so thick that the sandwich is too dry to enjoy

  • Most bread can be sliced in advance as long as they are covered to prevent drying

  • Some sandwiches call for toasted bread which should be done immediately before assembly
