Everything is so easily available to us, it's tough to remember just how much work goes into making a simple sandwich.

Well, one of the guys from How to Make Everything decided to dedicate six months of his life and $1,500 to find out just how much it takes.

This guy does everything from harvesting wheat for bread to going to the ocean to get salt. Along the way, he milks a cow for the butter, grows a garden for the vegetables , kills a chicken for the protein and so much more.

So much of this surely springs from the artisanal impulses of us millennials to make something ourselves and shorten the removal that convenience brings.

It reminds us of The Toaster Project from a few years ago, where a guy set out to make a toaster completely from scratch.

The thing barely worked.

So, sandwich guy wins this round.

Dominque Ansel will be debuting the creation at SXSW this weekend. He said this to Eater:

The inspiration for the dessert — a chocolate cookie "glass" containing a "shot" of milk — came after Ansel tried his first Oreo "a few weeks ago" and was encouraged to eat it with milk, which is not "a natural combination in French culture."

Figuring that "if everyone was drinking milk with cookies, you might as well make a dessert that allows them both to be combined," Ansel has created a chocolate chip cookie recipe that "stayed crispy and moist in parts" even as it held milk.
