Reading the title alone of this cookbook by Tyler Kord, Chef, No. 7 Sub, makes one curious as to what’s inside. The author is the owner of the No. 7 Sub shops in New York. The artwork which is by William Wegman and photography by Noah Fecks are both amazing. The artwork reminds me of the older cookbooks of yesteryear. The photos of the actual sandwiches will make you drool. This book is a fun read even if you never try any of the sandwiches. I haven’t yet, but do have several marked to try in the future.
This book had me chuckling out loud from the introduction which is by Emma Straub and is a fantastic story in itself. Some of the combinations sound like they’d never work, but you’ll never know unless you try. This coming from a southern girl who enjoys a banana, bologna and mayonnaise on white bread.
There are not only meat options for sandwiches, but some veggie ones as well.
Names of the sandwiches are intriguing as well, and the back stories about them a joy to read. For instance: The Empire Strikes Back, Alf, Hot Patootie, Don’t Cry for Me Argentia, The Battle on Pork Chop Hill, and How Soon is Now, to name a few. There is some strong language in places that isn’t my cup of tea, but not enough to be off putting to me. If you enjoy a good read along with your sandwich then this if the book for you.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for my honest review.
