What's the origin of the word sandwich?
The word sandwich came from the 4th Earl of Sandwich, an English nobleman said to have eaten food in this form.
It was named after John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich, an eighteenth-century English aristocrat. It is said that he ordered his valet to bring him meat tucked between two pieces of bread, and others began to order "the same as Sandwich!"
