Sandwich synthesis, swiftly stacking savory slices of sustenance.
Burnt bread bodes badly, better bread beseeches benevolence.
Meat mastered mercilessly. Meticulous mannerisms make ­marvelous meals.
Novices know not the carefully crafted crunch of crispy crust.
An elegant engineer, a cunning chef, my veins pump with ­mustard and mayonnaise.
The knife in my hand is a blur. To say that I have mastered my craft is an understatement of the grandest and highest ­proportions.
I do more than assemble parts into a whole. I create art of a higher standard – my medium is found in your refrigerator. I openly ­ostracize others, attempters of art who have no place in the kitchen.
I am the best of the best, the iron chef of sandwich stadium. Whether wheat, rye, or sourdough, I prevail. I make people ­experience the delicious. I make sandwiches.

Wonderful! It reminded me of a chef I saw once in a Japanese resturant.
