Is the crumb sandwich Argentine?

15 Sep 2022

Crumb sandwiches are an Argentine classic. Although in ancient times this was not a massive product, it has been available in the most traditional bakeries and confectioneries in the country for decades now. 

Even though they are very common in Argentina, the truth is that its origin is not Argentine.

Where does the crumb sandwich come from?

Its most direct antecedent is the tramezzini, a sandwich invented in Turin, Italy, in 1925, which Italian immigrants brought to Argentina. It is said that the Café Mulassano is where these sandwiches originated. Apparently, this place offered more than 40 varieties of tramezzini. However, in Italy, the sandwich is triangular and the combinations of ingredients are different from those of crumb sandwiches. For example, two of the most traditional tramezzini sandwiches are those filled with smoked salmon and lettuce, and tuna and artichokes.
