The Sultans of Sandwich
Roberto Serrini and Jeremy Spector have a sandwich problem. They love them.
Roberto met Jeremy after hearing tales of a hamburger so tasty it will make you a vegetarian because, after eating it, seriously, whats the point of ever eating more meat again. The tales were true and Roberto was quick to document the experience with a short doc. Since that collaboration Jeremy and Roberto have been creating food fantastic content together with a passion.
MMAS came out their sheer love for the bread hugged meal. They quickly realized that everyone loves a good sandwich, particularly chefs, and the show took off. The premise was simple; find our favorite chefs, and ask them to make us their favorite sandwich. The results were unexpected; from your classic Sausage Sandwich to the exotic Fluffernutter. One thing was clear; the love for the sandwich was strong, and lots of people loved the show.
Soon the show took on a life of its own. Gothamist called it a revelation of breaded invention. Serious Eats said it made their mouth water on their keyboards. We even got a call from Arianna Huffington asking us for a recipe. Perhaps the most rewarding aspect of the show was the discovery of the world's best sandwich, The Horrowitz Pastrami Sandwich. A secret menu item that was only ordered from those in the know, which is now the basis for its own successful restaurant in the East Village.
To bring a sandwich into this world is truly a think of beauty. To eat said sandwich, is nothing short of divine.
