"In this eating tour of America ... Jane and Michael Stern hunt down nearly 100 examples of supreme sandwichery and show how to recreate them in the kitchen. The United Sandwiches of America includes nearly every state, from California (a quintessential Grilled Gruyre with Braised Leeks on multigrain from Clementines in L.A.), to New York (Chopped Liver from the famous Katz"s Deli), up to Maine (an overflowing, warm lobster roll from the Maine Diner in Wells), and down to Florida (a Cuban: ham, pork, Swiss, and garlicky salami with pickles, lettuce, and tomato). It embraces the Muffuletta of New Orleans and the Hot Brown of Louisville (white turkey meat under sizzling cheese with tomato and bacon), not to be confused with the Hot Truck of Ithaca, New York (a pizza sub). Julia Child's when-nobody's-looking favorite is here (baked beans on a masterful brown bread), and so is Elvis"s beloved Peanut Butter and Banana. Each of the legendary heroes, hoagies, wraps, grinders, blimps, gyros, and subs comes with its own quirky story."--Publisher's description
