Sandwiches: A Delicious Lunchtime Tradition


When it comes to lunchtime in Britain, there’s one food item that reigns supreme: the sandwich. It’s no surprise that approximately 72% of Brits choose sandwiches as their go-to meal at work. In fact, we devour a staggering 11.5 billion sandwiches each year, and interestingly, only half of them are made at home.


イギリスのランチタイムといえば、最高に君臨する食べ物が 1 つあります。それはサンドイッチ食パンです。

英国人の約 72% が職場での主食としてサンドイッチを選んでいるのも不思議ではありません。

実際、私たちは毎年 115 億個ものサンドイッチを食べていますが、興味深いことに、そのうちの半分だけが家庭で作られています

The story behind the sandwich dates back to the early eighteenth century. It all started with Lord Sandwich, the fourth Earl of Sandwich. He was a busy man, constantly engrossed in card games, work at his desk, and his commitments to the navy, politics, and the arts. With his packed schedule, he didn’t have time for a proper sit-down meal. Instead, he came up with a clever solution: he would ask his servants to bring him slices of meat sandwiched between two slices of bread. This habit became so well-known among his friends that they began ordering “the same as Sandwich.” Eventually, it simply became known as a “Sandwich,” and thus, the iconic food item was born.


サンドイッチの背景にある説は 18 世紀初頭にまで遡ります。

すべては第 4 代サンドイッチ伯爵サンドイッチ卿から始まりました。

彼は多忙な人物で、常にカード ゲーム、机での仕事、海軍、政治、芸術への取り組みに熱中していました。

Today, you can find a wide variety of sandwiches in the UK. Whether you visit a supermarket, shop, or corner store, there’s something to suit every taste. From classic ham and cheese to indulgent Bacon Butties (a delicious fried bacon sandwich) and refreshing BLT (Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato), the options are endless. And not forgetting the seasonal Christmas sandwiches filled with turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce.

Of course, no sandwich lunch is complete without a bag of crisps (or as they are known outside the UK, chips). They add that extra crunch and flavor to the meal, making it a truly satisfying experience.


もちろん、サンドイッチランチはポテトチップス (イギリス以外ではチップスと呼ばれる) の袋なしでは完成しません。
