Hungry? Why Not Have a Sandwich?

By Contributing Food Editor Jared Levan

Dear Incredible-Edible Sandwich,

I love the way you look sitting there on the plate, begging to be eaten. And though I’m not quite sure how, you possess some strange power over me to which I am utterly helpless. Never in all my years would I have imagined you’d look so delicious sliced in-two and slapped on top of a photocopier.

Jon Chonko, of Scanwiches decided to capture the beauty of the almighty sandwich using nothing but a xerox–no photoshop here. Their philosophy is simple, it’s all about the true beauty of the bread and everything in between. This is just some of the Scanwicher’s work.

Can you find your favorite ‘wich?

Ingredients: banana pepper, tomato, provolone, ham, genoa salami.

Ingredients: Ramen noodle “bread,” ham, yellow american cheese.

Lobster Roll: lobster, butter, roll.

Ingredients: pumpkin filling, vanilla marshmallow, graham cracker “bread.”

Bahn Mi: baguette, pate, cha lua pork, pickled carrot, cilantro, pickled cucumber.

Ingredients: chocolate-hazelnut spread, marshmallow.

Talk about food porn. After all this you’re probably getting hungry. I know I am….

  1. I’m a little concerned about that copy machine… and the next person who tries to use it. That said, is 10:57 am too early for banana peppers, tomatoes, provolone, ham, and genoa salami? I’m starving.

  2. In my entire life I have never wanted to eat a sandwich more than I do in this moment.

    Thank you for these pictures.

    I was already hungry and I’m pregnant. Now I need to go eat 9 sandwiches for lunch (though I am now REALLY craving a lobster roll. Yum!)
