Cuban sandwiches too are an American creation, having been invented at around the same time it's necessary ingredient, the Cuban bread was. Although not invented by a non-Cuban, the sandwich still represents a blending of cultures, having been created from the importing of not only Cuban immigrants and workers but also cooking. Created similarly to a ham and swiss sandwich, the Cuban consists of added pickles, mustard, added pork, and the famous Cuban bread, all toasted together.
While the previous two foods have had vague pasts, being created in the exchange of ideas and cultures of America and Cuba, the deviled crab has it's history rooted in the 1920 Tampa cigar strikes. As the union workers starved, blue crabs were caught and incorporated with red-chili flakes that give the roll its name, and stale Cuban bread to combat hunger. Although the strikes ultimately were settled, with both union leaders and factory owners claiming victory and certainly no clear victor in sight, the deviled crab emerged from it a new food staple borne from necessity in the Miami-Tampa bay region.
