Cookery & Wine
Everyone loves toast. And now it's the new gourmet trend - a craze that began in San Francisco when a gourmet bakery/cafe called The Mill began serving really, really good toast with yummy toppings and charging $4 US for it - an apparently outrageous price for toast at a cafe in the States. While that price doesn't seem quite so outrageous over this side of the world, the toast trend itself is now global. Food fans everywhere are abandoning flaccid white sliced for classy sourdough, spelt and rye - all of which are oh so much nicer and healthier for you than boring white bread. Posh Toast features every toast recipe you could ever need, including good ol' avocado toast, but also prawn toast, anchovy toast, posh Nutella on toast, bruschetta, croques, Scandi toasts, chickpea and chorizo on toast, butternut and tahini on toast, whipped gorgonzola and honey on toast...
With 70 recipes covering breakfast, lunch, snacks and teatime, plus a guide to the basics of toasting and a photo for every single recipe, this is the ultimate gifty cookbook or self-purchase for toast addicts, expert chefs and novices alike.
It's toast. And it's posh. It's Posh Toast.
