Every now and then, a truly smile-worthy idea comes to our attention that blends food, culture, art, and innovation. This happened last week when we came across art student and designer Kelly Pratt's project Stately Sandwiches.Essentially, Pratt set out to make a distinct and unique sandwich for all fifty states after researching each one exhaustively through books, the internet, and by calling local sandwich shops and checking in with residents. She lays out the deconstructed sandwiches on a cutting board and takes a photo and posts it to her site. She also sells the prints online. Currently she has twelve sandwiches photographed, and a busy summer ahead.
My favorite is The California, although I may be biased towards my homestate (avocado!). Regardless, we're all looking forward to following along on Pratt's delicious journey!
