A best seller and award-winner in the UK, Toast is sure to delight both foodies and memoir readers on this side of the pond, especially those who made such enormous successes of Ruth Reichl's Tender at the Bone and Anthony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential.

Nigel Slater is fabulous!
Didn't even know who Nigel Slater was when I bought the book (even though I am English!). A fantastic and nostalgic account of growing up in England. The ups & downs of life, very blunt and honest, very dry. I remember all the food so well. His descriptions were so clear, I could almost smell the rice pudding, the crumble; almost taste those mash potatoes, and especially the Walnut Whip!
I will be on the look out if he decides to make audio books of his other books. Brilliant!

A Good Bit of Toast
This book is a perfect meal for all foodies out there. The author of the book is also the reader. Slater imbues his text with personal emotion and great humor. I found myself wanting more and getting very hungry in the process. This is also a great culinary guide to British home style cooking in the 60's and 70's. Very engaging and fast read.
