Salame Facts

1. Forget the Earl of Sandwich.

True thanks are owed to Mrs. DiCostanza of Chester, PA who is credited with introducing the U.S. to the concept of the submarine sandwich from Naples, Italy in the early 1900’s. For more than 100 years, sandwich aficionados have owed a debt of gratitude to Mrs. DiCostanza as they sink their teeth into works of art nestled between two pieces of bread. While they agree on the ingenuity of the concept, they still can’t agree on what to call it. From coast to coast, you’ll find sub sandwiches under the alias “heroes,” “grinders,” “po’ boys” or “dagwoods” depending on where you order.
