Monte Cristo Sandwich Day + Día del Sándwich Monte Cristo [Eng+Spa]

in We Are Alive Tribe10 months ago
Sunday, and I've taken the day easy. There is little to report about my personal #life, I will even say that I spent a good part of the day reviewing news and old messages that I had pending from some acquaintances. So, I've really kept things very calm.

I was actually worried that my record of the day would be too brief, but I came across an anniversary of #history that made me think it might be interesting to highlight, even though it is not an international celebration, but rather a celebration of a popular #food in the North of the American continent. Today is 'Monte Cristo Sandwich Day', or Day of #MountChrist Sandwich.

Domingo, y me he tomado el día con calma. Hay poco que reportar de mi #vida personal, incluso diré que pasé buena parte del día revisando noticias y mensajes viejos que tenía pendientes de algunos conocidos. Así que de verdad he llevado las cosas muy tranquilas.

En verdad que me preocupaba que mi registro del día fuera demasiado breve, pero me encontré con una efeméride de la #historia que me hizo pensar que podría ser interesante resaltarla, a pesar de que no es una celebración internacional, sino más bien una celebración de una #comida popular en el Norte del continente americano. Hoy es el ‘Día del Sándwich Monte Cristo’.

If you are from any other part of the world, as is my case, the name of this peculiar dish may not sound familiar to you, but I will try to present this #sandwich to you in the most enjoyable way possible. By the way, I've noticed that I must be a little obsessed with food (personal smile), because my most recent records have revolved around their reflections on anniversaries that have to do with #cooking.

Well, let's start by saying that the Monte Cristo Sandwich is a creation of North American #gastronomy, and that it was created from the inspiration of the French croque Monsieur sandwich, in both #sandwiches they have loaves of #bread, filled with slices of ham and cheese, and covered with a layer that seals them (even partially).

Si eres de cualquier otra parte del mundo, tal como es mi caso, puede que el nombre de este peculiar platillo no te suene familiar, pero trataré de presentarte este #sandwich de la manera más amena que me sea posible. Por cierto, he notado que debo estar un poco obsesionado con la comida (sonrisa personal), porque mis registros más recientes han girado sus reflexiones en torno a efemérides que tienen que ver con la #cocina.

Bien, comencemos por decir que el Sándwich Monte Cristo es una creación de la #gatronomía norteamericana, y que se creó a partir de la inspiración del sándwich croque Monsieur francés, en ambos #emparedados se tienen hogazas de #pan, rellenas de lonjas de jamón y queso, y cubiertas con una capa que los sella (aunque sea parcialmente).

In the French case, the sandwich is prepared in a very common way for sandwiches anywhere in the world, but a layer of Béchamel sauce is placed on top, and it is grilled in the oven before serving it, that is what makes it peculiar. In the American case, the sandwich is made practically the same as all the ones I know, but when it is assembled and ready, it is completely covered with beaten egg and lightly fried until golden brown, to be served hot, covered with a little syrup of maple (or jam, or sprinkled with sugar, etc.).

This is how the Monte Cristo Sandwich combines sweet and salty flavors, in a very practical and deliciously simple combination. That kind of flavor combination can be a bothersome thing for some people, but personally, I like those conflicting flavors that balance each other out. Furthermore, in my country's cuisine, we have several traditional recipes in which small amounts of sweet ingredients are added to dishes that are usually considered salty.

En el caso francés, el sándwich se prepara de una manera muy común para los emparedados en cualquier parte del mundo, pero se le coloca una capa de Salsa Bechamel por encima y se le gratina al horno antes de servirlo, eso es lo que lo hace peculiar. Para el caso americano, el emparedado se hace prácticamente igual a todos los que conozco, pero al estar armado y listo, se cubre por completo con huevo batido y se sofríe ligeramente hasta que dora, para servirlo caliente, cubierto con un poco de jarabe de arce (o mermelada, o espolvoreado con azúcar, etc.).

Es así que el Sándwich Monte Cristo combina sabores dulces y salados, en una combinación muy práctica y deliciosamente simple. Esa clase de combinación de sabores puede ser una cosa molesta para algunas personas, pero en lo personal, me gustan esos sabores contrapuestos que se equilibran. Además, en la cocina de mi país, tenemos varias recetas tradicionales en las que se le agregan pequeñas cantidades de ingredientes dulces a platillos que usualmente son considerados como salados.

Something that caught my attention was the name, I wanted to know why they named it after a French novel by Alexandre Dumas, published between 1844 and 1845 (for 2 years it was published in parts, like pamphlets, until it was completed and produced a first impression overall). This novel of revenge, longing, disappointments, love and adventure is considered one of the best novels in French literature... But I still don't understand the reason for naming this food after him.

What I was able to find is that it was actually originally called the French Sandwich (at least that is the name in North American cookbooks from 1930), and it seems that, by association of ideas, between the French nationality and the popularity of the magnificent novel, There is speculation that it could be the cause of the name... I can't say for sure. Just as I am not clear why this day, September 17, was chosen for its celebration. Anyway, that doesn't stop me from choosing it and making me want to prepare it this week to try how it suits me.

Algo que me llamaba la atención era el nombre, quería saber por qué le pusieron el nombre de una novela francesa de Alejandro Dumas, publicado entre 1844 y 1845 (durante 2 años se publicó por partes, como folletos, hasta que se completó y se produjo una primera impresión en conjunto). Esta novela de venganza, anhelo, decepciones, amores y aventuras, es considerada de las mejores novelas de la literatura francesa… Pero aún no entiendo el motivo de nombrar a esta comida con su nombre.

Lo que pude encontrar es que en realidad se le llamaban en inicio Sándwich Francés (por lo menos es el nombre en recetarios norteamericanos de 1930), y parece que, por asociación de ideas, entre la nacionalidad francesa y la popularidad de la magnífica novela, se especula que podría ser la causa del nombre… No puedo asegurarlo. Al igual que no tengo claro por qué se escogió este día, 17 de septiembre, para su celebración. En fin, eso no me impide escogerlo y hacerme desear prepararlo esta semana para probar que tal me queda.

By the way, the recipe is very simple, and there are very simplified versions that adapt to almost any pocket. Personally, I found a very simple recipe in #Spanish, which gives instructions in text and video, at: https://recetaculinaria.com/receta-de-sandwich-montecristo/

So, if you want to try a good, simple sandwich, I suggest giving this dish a try. Well, I say goodbye, wishing you that you are well, that you eat well, and that we can read again another time.

Por cierto, la receta es muy sencilla, y hay versiones muy simplificadas que se adaptan a casi cualquier bolsillo. En lo personal, hallé en español una receta muy simple, que da las instrucciones en texto y en vídeo, en: https://recetaculinaria.com/receta-de-sandwich-montecristo/

Así que, si quieres probar un emparedado simple y bueno, te sugiero darle una oportunidad a este platillo. Bien, ya me despido, deseándote que tú estés bien, que comas bien, y que nos podamos leer de nuevo en otra oportunidad.
