In Japan, you'll find sando everywhere: on convenience store shelves, Shinkansen menus and even vending machines.
Like hambagu, kareraisu and korokke, they are part of the culinary food group known as yoshoku (Western food), but their recent cult status has made them a popular snack enjoyed all over the world.
Chef Jimmy Callaway's passion for sando perfection has assembled the ultimate collection of simple and oishii (delicious) recipes for you to make at home. With stunning photography and a kawaii konbini-themed graphic layout, the recipes are divided into classic, vegetable, seafood, meat and sweet ingredients.
From Japanese favourites such as egg salad and pork katsu, to more contemporary fillings like mortadella, tofu or ice cream, you're bound to stumble upon your next cult sando within the pages of this book.
