With summer coming to a close and schools back in session soon, it’s no surprise that August pays homage to a lunch-box favorite – Sandwiches! Though people have been combining meat and bread for centuries, the sandwich as we know it was popularized in 1762 by John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich, a small town in southeast England.

According to food lore, the Earl had a substantial gambling problem and found himself at the card table for 24 hours straight one evening! Not wanting to leave the table, he asked the cooks to bring something he could eat with one hand, as not to interrupt his game. The London club he was playing at provided beef and cheese between two slices of loaf bread. Men at the club started to follow suit, stating, “I’ll have the same as Sandwich.” This convenience food soon became popular in London society circles and permanently took on the Earl’s name!

Today, sandwiches can be made savory, sweet, hearty, light, crispy & saucy & so on...but with the endless variety of sandwich combinations available, how do you decide?

We sat down with our Executive Chefs and one thing was unanimous – it all starts with a quality bread! “Whether it’s a hearty sliced bread that will stand up to condiments or a fresh baguette to provide crunch, the bread is definitely the key to building a great sandwich,” says Executive Chef Eric of the Inner Harbor.

Growing up, Miss Shirley's Corporate Executive Chef Brigitte spent the majority of her time by the ocean, which is how her love of seafood developed. Brigitte's grandparents used to own a hotel called The Fairfax down in Ocean City, and she would visit every summer. Brigitte would head out to the beach at 7 a.m. and soak up the sun all day!

"Nowadays, I spend my free time gardening, or on my porch reading and watching the hummingbirds make their way towards the bird feeders I have scattered across my yard."

But, Brigitte's favorite thing about summer has got to be the fresh seafood options, like Soft Shell Crabs! At Miss Shirley’s, her favorite Soft Shell dish is definitely the Soft Shell Crab & Succotash Eggs Benedict! It features local Logan’s Sausage Company’s Chesapeake Chicken Sausage and Black Eyed Pea Succotash on a Jumbo English Muffin with Old Bay Holandaise Sauce.

Gardening can be a relaxing and rewarding pastime for the mind, body & soul. It allows you to escape the hustle & bustle of daily life to soak in some vitamin D, peacefully connect with nature, and get a great workout!

Nevertheless, a green thumb isn’t necessarily something that you are born with. Gardens require a constant source of water, sunlight, and T.L.C., but don’t let that dissuade you in your pursuit to grow!

If anybody knows how challenging, yet rewarding gardening can be, it’s Miss Shirley’s Corporate Executive Chef Brigitte & Executive Chef Zuri! With the assistance of our Inner Harbor location's Executive Chef Eric, they cultivated the Fresh Vegetable & Herb Garden at Miss Shirley’s Roland Park location in 2014, and have kept it thriving ever since!

So for newcomers to the gardening world, we sat down to chat with Brigitte & Zuri to get their top tips & tricks on how to maintain a flourishing Vegetable & Herb Garden!
