SandwichThe name comes from the English diplomat John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich. It was said that he was a compulsive gambler and to avoid stopping the game to eat, he would order that his food was brought to his table. The valet would bring him cold beef between two slices of bread. Later the snack became known as sandwich.

La palabra sandwich proviene del diplomático inglés John Montagu, cuarto conde de Sandwich. Aparentemente, era un jugador compulsivo y para evitar tener que detener el juego para comer, ordenaba que le trajeran su comida a la mesa. Sus sirvientes normalmente le traían fiambre entre dos rebanadas de pan. Más tarde, este tipo de comida se conoció como sandwich.
