What you'll do
Immerse yourself in the world of sandwiches as you cook, eat, photograph and discuss everything there is to know about an iconic New York sandwich, with the help of a professional sandwich guide! Whether you're learning to cook for the first time, or you're a masterchef, on this experience you will join fellow sandwich fans as we "cook" a delicious New York sandwich, and master the art of sandwich photography to make your Instagram page "drool-worthy" just like the photos on the @a_man_and_his_sandwich page. As we go along, you will be introduced to the fascinating history of the sandwich and to Alidoro (the famous NY deli whose sandwich we will recreate), and also debate the deep philosophical question "what is a sandwich?". Please note this experience is available for vegetarians and meat eaters alike! If you don't see a tour time that suits you, please send me a message so we can find a day/time that works

Hi, I’m Ben, better known as “A Man and His Sandwich.” As one of the pioneer Airbnb experience hosts in New York, I have created and led several successful NYC food and drink experiences for the past 2.5 years, hosting over 1500+ fellow sandwich enthusiasts on my deliciously fun tours. More generally, as a passionate foodie, I’ve searched the globe for the world's best sandwiches. Documenting my adventures along the way, I've published articles, recorded podcasts, and spoken on panels all about the topic of the sandwich!
