Making sandwiches can get pretty dull for both the cook and the family. Here is a book that is filled with mostly new ideas for you to try. The author covers sandwich ideas from across the whole country and gives the information about where a particular sandwich is available. The book is based on the PBS special about sandwiches produced by WQED in Pittsburgh.

Just to give you an idea of the contents let me introduce you to a restaurant in Monument Valley, Utah. The sandwich is made with "Navajo Fried Bread" and used for the "Navajo Taco." You can also find a recipe for a "Rolled Cob Sandwich" which you can find in Westport, Connecticut. Now you can try this one in your kitchen. You can try "Rhode Island Clam Rolls" and The "French Dip" recipe with a well-earned accolade. That last one is from Los Angeles, California.

What a nice addition this could make to your kitchen skills.
