Warm up with a spicy sandwich this February

On a cold February day there is nothing better than good ‘comfort food’ to keep out the cold and our Spicy Sandwich of the Month will help you keep warm.

The theme this month is ‘Spice Up your Life,’ and the British Sandwich Association is encouraging consumers to go to their local sandwich bar and try a spicy sandwich.

To add a little more spice to the occasion, the association is offering consumers the chance to win an Apple iPod Nano (colour of your choice) in an on-line draw during February.

To enter the free draw just visit the association’s consumer website at www.lovesarnies.com and say which sandwich retailer you think makes the best spicy sandwich in your area.

For a taster, why not try out this recipe for ‘Free-Range Roast Chicken with Sweet Chilli Salsa Sandwich’ which won John Varey the title of Sandwich Designer of the Year in 2008.
