This is the story about a single comment in 1756 that has changed how we all eat to this very day...
It's 1756, Sir John Montague was the Fourth Earl of Sandwich and when he wasn't in parliament he liked nothing more than playing poker with his pals.
What he hated was when his friends asked to stop the game because they were hungry and wanted to adjourn to the dining room.
So, on the night in question, when one of his friend's belly's started rumbling, Sir John Montague called over the butler and asked them to bring everyone a nice juicy steak in between two bits of bread.
This, the waiter duly did and lo and behold, on that night in 1756 the Sandwich was invented.
And it remains the most egalitarian way to feed ourselves in the Western world to this very day.
