Matt Wilkinson was recently named as the winner of the first World Sandwichship with his creative toasted ham sandwich and quesadilla wrap.
The Championship was held as part of the Crave Sydney International Food Festival.
Matt is from the Pope Joan café in Melbourne, and was up against sandwich creators from around the world.
The competitors were given an hour to create sandwiches in three categories, and Matt won with his ham and three pickles toasted sandwich with Welsh Rarebit fondue and his creative Cuban- style Quesadilla wrap.
The judges based their decision on the following criteria; taste, presentation, innovation, explanation and, of course, the “wow” factor.
The competition was run by the Australasian Sandwich Association, which is a group dedicated to representing sandwich bars and cafes across this region. To join or find out more information – www.sandwich.org.au
