Mezzetta contest asks: Is your sandwich creation worth $25,000?

By Allen Pierleoni

Sandwich trivia? We have that: The mountainous sandwich stuffed with a refrigerator's worth of ingredients is known as the Dagwood, so named in the 1930s in honor of its creator, Dagwood Bumstead, a main character in the "Blondie" comic strip.

Segue to this: August is National Sandwich Month and, appropriately, time for the third annual Make That Sandwich Recipe Contest. It's sponsored by Mezzetta, a Napa Valley-based purveyor of olives and peppers.

The grand prize is $25,000 and a "culinary trip and tour of the Napa Valley for two." The deadline to enter is Sept. 6. Go to for details.
