Yes, You Read That Right!
The entire sandwich preparation involved an expense of $ 1,500.
Sometimes gastronomy offers some of the most fascinating stories imaginable, and here is one of them. What is it about? The delicious chicken sandwich that took no more and no less than 6 months to prepare! Of course: for everyone’s peace of mind, here we leave a simple recipe to prepare this dish in a much shorter time: just 10 minutes. To enjoy!
The incredible story of the chicken sandwich that was made in 6 months
When it comes to preparing a meal, a person usually does the same thing that anyone would do: take note of the ingredients that are needed for the preparation and proceed to the market or local store to buy them.
However, there are some exceptions that stand out for following the “do it yourself” philosophy to the letter. One of them is that of Andy George, a YouTuber from Minnesota, United States, who had the particular idea of preparing a chicken sandwich by taking charge of the previous preparation of each of the ingredients necessary for the recipe.
Yes, as it reads. The idea, on the one hand, required some not so complex tasks, such as putting together a garden where to plant the vegetables and wheat to make the flour needed for the sandwich bread.
As might be expected, there were also great difficulties. For example, to make salt, he had to take a plane to the West Coast of the country, collect water from the ocean, boil it for hours, and then bake until the seasoning in question was obtained.
In line with this, another of the difficult points of the project was when he had to euthanize a chicken.
6-month-old sandwich: What were the results obtained?
In total, the process required about 6 months of time and about $ 1,500 in expenses, something completely ridiculous when you consider that it is a simple chicken sandwich.
Regarding the final result of the project, just watch the video in which Andy George tastes the finished dish: his face tells us that the sandwich tastes good, although it is not so exquisite as to justify all the effort made.
As indicated by the Today medium, George carried out a deeper analysis and expressed that the vegetables that he had harvested himself were richer and more flavorful than those that are bought in traditional outlets.
On the other hand, the homemade and complete preparation of the cheese and mayonnaise would also have influenced the final result.
Finally, it must be said that this American Youtuber did not stay solely with this project. What’s more, in this social network he has a channel called “How To Make Everything” in which you can see several videos with similar characteristics.
What do you think? Would you like to live an experience like this? If so, do you already know which dish you would choose to make from scratch?
