Since then, it has undergone many transformations from the original concept of slices of bread enclosing a tasty filling. This book shows how to use a wide range of breads to make all types of sandwiches: white, brown, rye, focaccia and ciabatta, in rolls, baps, tacos, bagels, pumpernickel, brioches, baguettes, and even croissants. Hot and cold sandwiches come in all types, shapes and sizes, including Sandwich Horns, Spicy Chicken Canapes, Smoked Salmon Pinwheels, Kofte in Pitta Pockets and Tostadas with Refried Beans. Sandwiches are perfect for suppers and snacks, as well as for parties, picnics or lunches.

When you haven't got much time, ideas for a well stocked store cupboard help you rustle up a sandwich quickly.
