This Homemade Sandwich Only Took 6 Months and $1,500 to Make

Sep 17, 2015

Andy George took home cooking to its loftiest heights.

The YouTuber spent six months and $1,500 making a sandwich completely from scratch. The do-it-yourself poster child grew a garden for vegetables, milked cows for cheese, extracted salt from the sea, milled wheat for flour, baked bread and slaughtered a chicken.

George even had an unexpected run in with the law when airport security mistook his bag of salt for an illegal substance. Speaking with T.S.A. is not a step you find in too many cook books.

So how did George’s sandwich taste after all his work?

“It’s not bad,” he said. “That’s about it.”

See for yourself in the video, but be warned, there is brief footage of chicken slaughter.
