I was so happy to receive a copy of this new cookbook to review. My sweet friend, Alison Lewis, who I met while we were contestents in the I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Bakeoff last November is the author. This is Alison's first cookbook but she's been working in the food industry for a long while. She blogs at Ingredients, Inc. where she creates healthy, family-friendly recipes that are easy to prepare. The cookbook is arranged by type of sandwich. So it's really convenient to locate a recipe for the type of sandwich you're craving. It has a breakfast sandwich section, a burgers, a wraps, a light and healthy sandwich section and more. One of my favorite sections is the condiments sections. A great condiment can make an okay sandwich great. I'm especially looking forward to trying the Chipotle Aioli next time I make a burger.

In 400 Best Sandwich Recipes, Alison Lewis takes on the gargantuan task of creating a comprehensive collection of sandwich recipes--everything from the classics to burgers to wraps and condiments. The Grilled Cheese section alone contains 91 recipes--and I thought I was exhausted of grilled cheese! Without question, coming up with this many sandwich recipes requires a good amount of creativity. Alison's creativity proves to be boundless as she delivers innovative twists on familiar favorites such as BLT Pimiento Cheese Sliders, Tuna Caesar Wraps Prosciutto and Melon Grilled Cheese. She also has an appetizer section with a slew of mini sandwiches and crostini. Out of the 400 recipes in this cookbook, the one that I knew right away I wanted to make first was the Grilled Crab, Mango and Avocado. The reason? A chance for sandwich redemption.

"Sandwiches?" You ask, "Why do I need a book about how to make a sandwich?" Oh, come on. You know how easy it is to be boring. Bread and filling does not automatically make a good sandwich. Wrap up a bunch of dull and you've got exactly that -- dull. But, in this day and age we all often need simple meal -- it needs to filling, not complicated, not a lot of dishes, and most important? Good and good for you. A sandwich can be the way to go. We've all heard the food myth about the Earl of Sandwich not wanting to leave the drinking and a-smokin' at his gambling table and "invented the sandwich." I never actually believed that tall tale. It was one of the many wonderful stories in the Childcraft books I poured over as a child. Ever since there has been bread and something to put between the slices there have been sandwiches and I can guarantee that it was before a gambling parlor incident in the late 1700s. There's no doubt about Alison's book! She has 400 recipes -- from classics to
burgers to more modern wraps and condiments for them all. It's a great starter cookbook for a graduation present, fun to have at the cabin or beach house, and just a splash of surprise to counteract dull dinners and lackluster lunches. Busy moms will love it. She shares recipes for Stuffed Pizza Burgers, Balsamic Glazed Chicken with Peppers and Goat Cheese, Grilled Crab Quesadillas...and 397 more-- including the tantalizing temptress, the exotic, exquisite, Banh Mi. Bon Appétit, Y'all! (Virginia Willis Virginia Willis Culinary Productions virginiawilli 2011-05-13)
What makes this sandwich book stand out? It has simple and excellent recipes for everything between two slices of bread. Hamburgers, wraps, paninis and sandwiches -- Yiddesh, Cuban, German and Italian and every nationality in between -- this book has them all. (The Daily Basics thedailybasics.com 2011-05-16)
As the proud owner of a culinary library with over 6,000 cookbooks, I can honestly say that I never get tired of food or books about food. So of course it was a delight to get my hands on the newly released cookbook, 400 Best Sandwich Recipes by Alison Lewis. I had the opportunity to interview Alison by phone before receiving the book in the mail, and fully enjoyed our conversation as foodies. Alison has worked developing recipes for over 17 years and it shows. We both love cookbooks and got to share some of our favorite ones! And speaking of favorite cookbooks, 400 Best Sandwich Recipes, takes the title in the sandwich category for me. It is like an encyclopedia of sandwiches, all in one volume! Reading this book, took me on a journey of interesting blends of flavors combined into a favorite comfort food style, the sandwich! Recipes include sandwiches for breakfast, appetizers, lunch, burgers and even desserts. After savoring in my mind so many of the recipes, I chose to try the
Tomato Tea Sandwich with Arugula and Basil, which Alison suggests is a great spring and summer appetizer. I thought my daughter, who loves basil, would love to try them at our mother/daughter picnic. They were so refreshing and so simple, that I am planning to serve them again at a lunch that I'll be having with another author at a farm. (That's a story for another day!) For those of us who are super busy but still love to add variety to our daily menus 400 Best Sandwich Recipes is the way to go.For those of us who are super busy but still love to add variety to our daily menus 400 Best Sandwich Recipes is the way to go.

This is one of the best cookbooks for the money. It's for adults and children alike. You could make one for dinner every night of the year and never have to think about what you will prepare for your meal. Kids can make them also. There are simple sandwiches and gourmet sandwiches and even dessert sandwiches which sound yummy.
Check out this book. You will be so glad you did.
I cannot wait to see Alison's next creation.

This book has many unique ideas that inspire the reader to think beyond the usual mayo and lettuce to using things such as fruit and roasted red pepper aioli. I always appreciate color photos in a cookbook and some are included in this one. The only recipe I had a chance to try so far is the Huevos Rancheros Wrap, a breakfast egg sandwich. I had to make a few substitutions using what I had on hand but it was a good recipe that I would enjoy for any meal. Other recipes that appealed to me include bacon, mushroom and swiss croissant; tarragon chicken salad, grilled feta and turkey, buffalo chicken wraps, fried green tomato sandwich, and get this: a chocolate turtle panini!
I like this cookbook for all the ideas and because sandwiches are great for family meals and can be customized to each person's taste and appetite.
I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited nor was a positive review required.
There are tips on making the sandwiches in general, shortcuts, making ahead and storing. Recipes include; breakfast, appetizers, lunch box, classics, grilled cheese varieties, burgers, wraps, international, regional, light and healthy, condiments and desserts.
The recipes in the appetizer section are especially good and would help in many entertaining occasions. Try the homemade mayonnaise for a treat. There are only 3 four page colour picture sections and some sandwiches could really use a picture to illustrate what they are supposed to look like. Most recipes have variations included, such as use cinnamon raisin bread or reduced fat cream cheese can be used.
If you love sandwiches or just want some more ideas this is a good book to add to your cookbook
I have tried many and find them all to be good. I liked this book so much
that gave it as Christmas gifts to my girlfriends. I especially like the fruit
used in sandwiches. Pear,apples, figs, raspberries are all used. There are
breakfast sandwiches, lunchbox, seafood, wraps, international, healthy, and
new ways for classics. Apricot, Walnut Blue Cheese (and cream cheese) is
one of my favorites.
