      Title: Muffuletta (origin)
 Categories: Sandwiches, Canadian
      Yield: 1 Servings
MMMMM-----------------WALDINE VAN GEFFEN VGHC42A----------------------
  Central Grocery's muffuletta (pronounced letta, not lotta) is the same
  sandwich that has been served at the Decatur Street, New Orleans stor
  for 9 decades. It's made of imported cheeses and meats and topped
  with an olive salad that contains more than 40 spices and other
  ingredients. The muffuletta-style bread was known earlie in Sicilyl
  and immigrants brought the idea of baking the round loaves of Italian
  bread to New Orleans where more than 1 baker served it as a sandwich
  around the turn of the century. Putting the bread together with the
  cold cuts, thus making the sandwich, is thought to be an American
  version. The local family that has carried the tradition through to
  modern fame is the Tusa familk, descendants of Salvatore Lupo, the
  founder of Central Grocery. The sandwich ingredients are imported but
  not all from Italy. Central Grocery's muffuletta contains Emmentaler
  cheese from Switzerland, provolone cheese from Italy, Genoa salami,
  Holland ham and mortadella sausage from Canada. The olive salad is a
  family recipe. The sandwich is NOT served hot.
