Great Sandwich Contest Begins. Westporters Bite.

In the past couple of years Westporters have voted for their favorite pizzas, burgers and soups.

Next up: sandwiches.

The Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce’s Great Sandwich Contest runs throughout March. It’s dedicated to the memory of longtime A&S Fine Foods owner chef Albert Pizzirusso. The longtime Chamber supporter died earlier this month.

I have no idea what this sandwich is, or who made it. I found it on the internet. You didn’t think I’d play favorites, did you?
