Nigel Slaters boxing day sandwich

Posted in Features by thesandwichclub on December 30, 2010

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”
