Product Description

Publisher: Harper Collins

Author: Nigel Slater

TOAST is Nigel Slater′s truly extraordinary story of a childhood remembered through food. Whether relating his mother′s ritual burning of the toast, his father′s dreaded Boxing Day stew or such culinary highlights of the day as Arctic Roll and Grilled Grapefruit (then considered something of a status symbol in Wolverhampton) this remarkable memoir vividly recreates daily life in sixties surburban England.
