Re: The birth of the peacemaker sandwich
Now that's an interesting story. I've never heard of a "peacemaker", but I guess that name had fallen out of favour many, many decades ago. Large versions of the "dug out" used to exist in the area at some of the lakefront restaurants like Fitzgerald's. They'd take a large Italian style loaf and halve it longways. Scoop out the bottom half and fill it with loads of seafood. Fried and broiled oysters, shrimp, lake trout and others. The top got split again and turned into garlic bread. The Gentilly Giant was a famously delectable New Orleans offering.
