More About This Title Toast


Some people deliberately buy really tall bread, so that the top bit sticks out of the toaster to yield a combination of well-toasted and hardly-toasted areas. These people are just weird.

Everything you could possibly want to know about toast: learn why the Victorians thought toast-flavored water was good for your health, marvel at Mrs. Beeton's "toast sandwich" (a piece of toast between to slices of bread) and get needlessley embroiled in the Great Marmite Debate. With more than 30 recipes, Toast takes a satirical look at the greatest of fast foods.
