Classic Americana  Nov 13, 2008
If you are looking for a book with recipes for those classic American staple sandwiches this is it. Not only will you find the better known Reuben, French dip, Philly cheesesteak etc, there are other recipes from around the country that you probably have never heard of. If you are interested in the actual history of each recipe, you will find that here as well. Great buy!
 
Not Just Another Pretty Sandwich Book  Aug 14, 2008
Becki Mercuri has assembled an exciting, usable, creative offering of favorite sandwiches from across the U.S. that anyone in search of flavor diversity should grab immediately. Both old favorites and new discoveries await for anyone who likes the idea of more than the everyday "same old sandwich" you can get anywhere. With names like "Navajo Taco" or "Hot Brown," the names themselves can clue you in to the experiences you can taste with this book.
 
picture book of postcards and license plates  May 16, 2005
The book would have been more appealing if the pages had pictures of the sandwiches described or more pictures of the shop that made them famous.

The book however does give you the history of the area, customs of the people and references the sandwich shops addresses along with phone numbers and sometimes internet web pages.
 
A fun, appealing celebration of the sandwich   May 11, 2005
Regional American sandwich recipes from all fifty states are profiled in American Sandwich: Great Eats From All 50 States, a unique cookbook which has gleaned sandwich recipes from across the country, from diners to delis and beyond. Pair a state-by-state organization for quick regional reference with introductions to each outlining the best delis and sandwich houses and recipes of many delights and you have a fun, appealing celebration of the sandwich which even Dagwood would enjoy.

 
Who doesn't like a good sandwich?  Nov 16, 2004
"American Sandwich" brings you specialty sandwiches from all 50 states. And we ask you, who doesn't like a good sandwich? Not only will you soon be stuffing yourself with great sandwiches, you'll also learn a little about the history of the sandwich, the birth of Wonder Bread, and the influence of immigrant flavors on American sandwiches! Becky is an accomplished cook who has gathered recipes throughout the world.

We especially like her Miami pages. It seems that she got a great recipe for Cuban sandwiches from three guys we know in West Dade! Order one along with our book, "Three Guys From Miami Cook Cuban" (ISBN 158685433X) and qualify for FREE shipping!
