An article published this week featured various hangover remedies from around the globe (a little too late for those of us who overindulged at New Year’s Eve last week).
According to the piece, Newcastle University have conducted research into the best hangover cures and have found that a Bacon Sandwich is the most effective hangover cure around!
At the Sandwich Club we were thrilled to find this out, confirming that sandwiches are indeed ace.
I had been pondering on a new year’s resolution and now I think I have the answer
Science has proven that by drinking more alcohol I can, and should, eat more sandwiches. Fact.
I’m off to the pub….
NB: A dose of Kevin Bacon in the morning is unlikely to cure a hangover.
The other day my housemate and I sat down to watch the TV and as per usual there was nothing to our tastes worth watching. This is when iplayers and such like become very useful. The on demand button was pressed and trawling through the myriad of shows on offer, one that stood out immediately was Nigel Slater’s cookery show that first aired on channel 4 in 1998! One of the episodes is dedicated entirely to the humble sandwich. Cue the inevitable sandwich porn innuendos and we were watching the construction of some of foods finest creations including a delectable Muffuletta.
Nigel Slater is clearly an admirer of the sandwich, dedicating TV shows and book chapters to the science of sandwich making. More recently I found this article in the Guardian that typifies his admiration. Behold, Nigel Slaters “boxing day” sandwich. Check out his article here.
As Nigel says “there is no better sandwich than the one I make on Boxing Day with the bits left over from the day before”
