Sandwiches have been accepted for so long as a simple-to-prepare, always-appropriate-to-serve food, that they are usually the first thing we think of when we plan a spring entertainment where food is to be served. The name of this type of dish originated with the Earl of Sandwich, who, it is said, was so fond of the gaming table that he had his cook prepare this "portable food" in order that he might play and eat at the same time.
