As much a visual feast as recipe book, Battman’s (aka Adam Batt, renowned New York photographer) Sandwiches of the World is a vivid, mouthwatering invitation to what are arguably the world’s most delicious and sophisticated sandwiches. In an unrelenting visual assault, Battman provides gorgeous close-up portraits of the most varied collection of sandwiches ever assembled. With recipe contributions and wine pairing suggestions from restaurants and chefs worldwide, Sandwiches of the World spans the sandwich gamut, including the truffle-stuffed “db burger royal” from Daniel Bouloud’s eponymous restaurant alongside the “soft shell crab blt” from Havana Blue in the Virgin Islands. If it is a sandwich, or almost a sandwich, and if it is exceptional, Battman will have found it. Each of the books 108 recipes accompanies a stunning photograph, so alive with fresh, bright colors and textural details that you’ll swear you can taste with your eyes.
