Would You Like a Review Copy of My Book, The Encyclopedia of Sandwiches?

How do you keep a Dagwood from toppling over? Who created the macho Muffuletta? What makes a deviled ham sandwich devilish?

Discover these answers and more in The Encyclopedia of Sandwiches, a chunky little cookbook dedicated to everything between sliced bread, written by yours truly, Susan Russo.

Hero. You have to be a hero to finish one. 

The Encyclopedia of Sandwiches shares recipes, history, and trivia for over 100 beloved meals between sliced bread. Each sandwich, as you can see from the images here, is accompanied by a full-color, gorgeous photo beautifully styled by Adam C. Pearson and photographed by Matt Armendariz of Matt Bites.

The Muffuletta or "Muff." Despite its dainty nickname, it's pure machismo.

You'll find cherished classics such as Peanut Butter and Jelly, Fluffernutter and the Muffuletta as well as perky up-and-comers including The Cubano, The Nutella Sandwich and the Vietnamese Banh Mi.

Hawaii's Spamwich is suspicious yet delicious.

Regional favorites such as Hawaii's Spamwich, New Orleans's Po'Boy and Pittsburgh's Primanti are included along with quirky creations such as The Potato Chip Sandwich, The Banana Split Sandwich and The Doughnut Sandwich.

Salmon Sandwich, a modern take on the classic fish sandwich.

Belly-busters such as the Italian Hoagie, the Mexican torta and the all-American Jucy Lucy, or "inside-out" cheeseburger, share space with Skinny Sandwiches including the Grilled Portobello Sandwich, the Salmon Sandwich and The Roasted Vegetable Panini.

Whether you're a carnivore, vegetarian or omnivore, you'll find plenty of tasty options between sliced bread.

The Encyclopedia of Sandwiches will be released on April 5, 2011, but you can pre-order your copy today!

OK, put me on your list for a future Meatball Sub. ;) Heard back from Eric about receiving a review copy. Can't wait to read/see it.

Received my review copy in the mail today while I was at work. My husband who frequently complains about my abundance of cookbooks was EXCITED to see this one and called me at work to tell me about it lol. I stopped at the grocery to get club sandwich ingredients because he read the recipe aloud to me. Figured that would keep him on my good side where cookbooks are concerned. Thanks for sharing these review copies. I'm looking forward to "preparing" for it!
