I enjoyed reading this book. The author had taken a sandwich from each state. I liked reading the introduction & the recipes. Particularly, why the sandwich was chosen for the state. It tickled me that Arizona's sandwich, Navajo Taco, was from an establishment in Utah. It surprised me the sandwich chosen for Utah was an Italian sandwich, especially where so many immigrants were from Northern Europe. I guess the biggest surprise is Idaho produces so much trout. I picked it up to find new sandwich recipes for "sandwich night". I didn't find any, although I may try a pimiento grilled cheese sandwich.
