Product Description


“Too few people understand a really good sandwich.”—James Beard

“Presented as an encyclopedia with alphabetical entries, it is an easy-to-use guide for ideas and neglected ingredients. A reliable sandwich stop from A to Z”—Library Journal

The Encyclopedia of Sandwiches, by Susan Russo, is stuffed with fun history and many of the recipes that make sandwiches a favorite handheld food.”—Everyday Food

“A compendium that's worth the bread.”—Thrillist

“The book is compact, and the recipes are tempting and not overly involved. A nice touch is a six-page ingredient index, listing breads, condiments, sauces, meats, cheeses, fish, vegetables, fruits and nuts that appear in Russo's recipes. What to do with those pineapple rings in the fridge? There's a recipe that uses them.”—Bill Hogan, Chicago Tribune

“The Encyclopedia of Sandwiches is a fun read that will inspire creativity between sliced bread (or in a bun or pita pocket) and is a great resource to regale your friends with random sandwich facts. […] It will also leave you seriously jonesing for a sandwich.”—Katie Machol, Creative Loafing

About the Author

Author SUSAN RUSSO writes for NPR’s Kitchen Window and posts stories, recipes, and photos on her popular food blog, Food Blogga (which is Rhode Island-ese for “food blogger”). She is the
coauthor of Recipes Every Man Should Know (Quirk, 2010). She resides in San Diego. And she is forever indebted to her Italian mother for teaching her how to make a good meatball sub.

Photographer MATT ARMENDARIZ is a man obsessed with food, drink, and everything in between, as evidenced by his food blog, Matt Bites, and his cookbook dedicated to fair food, party food, and all food served On a Stick! He resides in Los Angeles. Let the record show that Matt is a true sandwich champion for trying every single sandwich in this book at least once—and some more times than he’d care to admit.

HASH(0xa9e13a14) out of 5 stars Sandwiches to Suit Every Occasion April 5 2011
By Dee Long - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Sandwiches are a weekend lifesaver at our house -- it's every man for himself in creating the perfect Dagwood. Susan Russo has created a wonderfully entertaining compendium of this historic menu item, along with plenty of inspiration for keeping your sandwich plate filled with simple to sublime creations.

Recipes include the famous New England Lobster Roll, the infamous Elvis bacon-banana-peanut butter gut buster, the hot and crisp Monte Cristo and even a pound cake sandwich for a different twist on sandwich bread. Even the sweet tooths are satisfied with suggestions for the ice Cream Sandwich and the heavenly Fluffernutter.

The Encyclopedia of Sandwiches offers the perfect menu solution for anyone stumped by the question -- what's for lunch (or breakfast or dinner for that matter!). Beautifully illustrated and easy to follow sandwich-making directions.

HASH(0xa9e13a68) out of 5 stars A to Z of sandwiches Oct. 9 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was looking for ideas for my husband's lunch box and ordered this book for inspiration. It has just about every type of sandwich you can imagine and more. Maybe not a gourmet's delight, instead it is geared more for the home cook. There are cold sandwiches, hot sandwiches and the panini. It contains enough recipes to keep you busy for several months. The recipes are simple with ingredients you can find at most grocery stores. No need here to hunt for that unusual ingredient. Great for the person who prefers simplicity in meal preparation.

HASH(0xa9e13d44) out of 5 stars Got this as a joke Oct. 25 2013
By John Cochrane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was filling out my classroom library this summer, and was buying a lot of Encylopedias of one topic or another. On a whim I got this. Never have I seen a book so eagerly read, or so fought over. I have to keep track of who has it so every student has a chance to read it. They go completely nuts over it, or should I say Fluffer Nutter over it. Often I have three or four students reading it at once. As a side benefit I have often gotten students to bring me some of these sandwiches, which I claim to eat (I have seen their desks, and hands, I am not eating what they cook.) They say the sandwiches are spectacular, however. For 5th and 6th graders this was a surprising must buy for a class library.

HASH(0xa9e13e4c) out of 5 stars Son loved it! Jan. 8 2013
By Christie S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this as a Christmas gift for my adult son who absolutely loves sandwiches. As we continued opening gifts, he didn't put it down. I think it was a hit! Not sure if he has attempted any of the recipes yet but he definitely liked the book.
