RSC marks historic cheap meal

Why not try an all bread sandwich

Culinary seasonings are the only flavouring suggested for the most basic of recipes - an all-bread sandwich.

The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) has recreated the dish to mark the 150th anniversary of the publication of Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management.

Mrs Beeton designed the sandwich to cater for impoverished Victorians and it is said to be the cheapest meal that can possibly be created.

Speaking on behalf of the RSC, Dr John Emsley explained preparation involved placing one slice of dry toast between two of buttered bread - before seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.

"I've tried it and it's surprisingly nice to eat and quite filling. I would emphasise that toast sandwiches are also good at saving you calories as well as money," he commented.

Those who are not so frugal could use cloves to stud a joint of ham to provide several rounds of sandwiches, which celebrity chef Mark Hix recently recommended in an article for the Independent.
