Notes from Sara:

There are several origin stories of the Monte Cristo sandwich, but my favorite is that they were first made circa 1925 in the Monte Cristo Hotel in Everett, Washington, which was itself named after the Monte Cristo mining region in the Cascades Mountains. We took that inspiration and extended it to a twist on the classic salad first made at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. My mother in law recently lent me a turn of the century cookbook from the Waldorf Astoria and it is fascinating to see how food has evolved in this country in such a relatively short amount of time. I hope you enjoy eating our creations as much as we like coming up with them. Brunch on!
