Product Description

Review

'It's everything you ever wanted to know about toast but were afraid to ask.' -- Mail on Sunday, Sept 29, 2002

'what seems like a seriously daft idea turns out to be a crunchy page-turner, helped along no end by witty writing from Parker... weird, but fun.' -- Lancashire Evening Post

It's a book for students really, but quite good fun nevertheless. -- The Sunday Telegraph, 6 Oct 2002

The definitive work on the subject. -- Waitrose Food Illustrated

We laughed a lot. It is the sort of thing The Wife would buy me for Christmas. -- Nicecupofteaandasitdown.com

All my thoughts about us Brits were confirmed in Toast. I always knew that I was an addict but it's nice to know that I'm not the only one. This is a thoroughly observant and 'fly-on-the-wall' look into a subject very close to our hearts, whether we admit it or not! It's both humerous and informative in its historical facts and findings and chuckles were plentiful from start to finish. I also got some useful tips and variations on my current 'toast' recipes!

This is the definitive book on toast, and can be devoured in one sitting. Superbly illustrated and laid out, well-researched, with humourous quotes, anecdotes and historical facts, and suggestions for "things" to put on toast. A toast addict will relate to every word.
One of my earliest childhood memories is of my father making toast with a toast fork in front of our open fire during a power cut one winter's evening (this was in the mid 1950s in New Zealand), so I had a good laugh at the author's experiment with a dining fork. And many, many other laughs!
His witty personal reflections will take away any shame at being a toast addict, and make you realise you are not alone!

Very, very funny and very, very pointless 16 Dec. 2005
By David Lucey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is the type of book that appeals to those who like an eccentric element to their reading. The wuthor writes a geniunely funny book and it makes for an ideal gift for somebody with a quirky sense of humour,

Highly recommended,

David
