Imagine a world with no sandwiches, no egg mayo, no ham and cheese. It would result in boring lunches to say the least! Nothing beats a good sandwich, but there are so many elements that need to be considered to make it perfect; nothing must be forgotten!

As a merry band of devoted foodies, we’re fascinated by the Great British Chefs recent survey from a nationally representative panel of 4,000 people, which examines the attitudes and behaviours of the UK’s foodies.
