It is a regional delicacy, isn't it?  I thought I remembered you were from
New England somewhere, they make them there too?  Or, perhaps, your "real
Italian sub" is not the same as mine.  I ordered one in Virginia once --
sort of a hot ham and cheese on a roll.  Not what I had in mind at all!

We have bought ingredients and made them ourselves sometimes.  They come out
pretty close, though it seems they are never quite as good as those from
Capriotti's or Casapulla's.
