Whoever named this 'sandwich' couldn't be more offensive.

That would be the the Italians in Des Moines who have made a living selling them for many generations ... doesn't make it right but it is what is... kinda like the white man taking the country from the native Americans and nearly making them extinct...the very land that you live on today. Have a great day!

Im as Italian as you can get. I'm also originally from Des Moines. When my father was a boy the word Guinea wasnt polite. However something happened between the 1930s and the 1970s. "guinea", in Des Moines,anyway... Became a word to be proud of. Not just a little bit. Its a word of great respect when used by one italian to describe another. If you were italian you would use it with love. By the time the 80s came around it meant nothing but to be descriptive of "that which is Italian" when used by others. Like "pizano" or "goombah". There used to be a restaraunt called the "Guinea Grinder" on Hickman avenue in the 70s. If any of my Italian friends would have been offended they'd have lit it on fire and beat the hell out of anyone who ran out of it. Really. Its okay. If youre offended by this i'm sorry. I'm a proud Dago. Piss on anyone who doesnt like it. By the way..... Great recipe and thank you! Joe. Seattle.
