Britain’s favourite sandwiches are firstly the bacon bap, closely followed by prawn and mayonnaise, Bacon Lettuce and Tomato (BLT), egg and cress, then, beef and horseradish. The most popular sandwich in France is sadly, the boring and conservative jambon-beurre. So boring that they have to mention the butter on the bread to make this ham sandwich slightly more appealing. We once ordered a ham sandwich in a town centre restaurant and that’s exactly what we got – ham and buttered bread. We had expected a bit of garnish and salad but got no more than what we had asked for. The good news is that Mark’s and Spencer’s in Paris sells BLT’s and all the other British favourites. Parisians are getting a taste for the exotic and queue for the prawn mayonnaise which sells out very quickly.
