If you've ever watched PBS at pledge time, there's a good chance you've had the pleasure of seeing Rick Sebak's incredible gustatory extravaganza called "Sandwiches That You Will Like." This available-on-DVD program "toasts" many delicious, mouth-watering, tastebud-tempting, bread-and-filling creations from local eateries around the country, such as lobster rolls at Red's Eats in Wiscasset, Maine, chipped-ham "slammers" at Isaly's in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and hot browns at the Camberley Brown Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky. Watching Mr. Sebak's nationwide odyssey to find America's best sandwiches is guaranteed to rev up your appetite."American Sandwich" is kind of a companion volume to Mr. Sebak's masterpiece--it includes some of the same memorable, droolworthy sandwiches--but it is actually much more. While Mr. Sebak took a "shotgun" approach in his travels around the country, "American Sandwich" goes it one better by featuring recipes for one hallmark sandwich each from all 50 states.After a short introduction to the mystique of sandwiches, and a brief timeline tracing the rising popularity of sandwiches in American culinary culture, author Becky Mercuri gets to the "meat" of the matter. Alphabetized by state, she covers each signature sandwich in two to four readable, well-laid-out pages that, in addition to the recipe, contain other interesting, useful tidbits. Each sandwich gets a sidebar that describes its origin and history--the story of the muffaletta, for example, takes up a whole page of the Louisiana section.
