Classic Club Sandwich

THE EXACT ORIGIN of the club sandwich is still a matter of debate among culinary historians. However, it is widely believed that the club sandwich was created in the late 19th or early 20th century in the United States.

One popular theory suggests that the club sandwich was first made at the prestigious Saratoga Club House in Saratoga Springs, New York. According to this account, the club sandwich was initially served as a late-night snack for the club’s wealthy clientele. It quickly gained popularity and spread throughout the country.

Another theory suggests that the club sandwich was created at the Union Club of New York City. It is said to have been a favorite among the club’s members and later became popular in other gentlemen’s clubs.

Regardless of its exact origin, the club sandwich has become an iconic staple of American cuisine. It typically consists of layers of toasted bread filled with sliced chicken or turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise. Nowadays, variations of the club sandwich can be found in many countries around the world, customized with different ingredients to suit local tastes.
