Toast Summary

Toast: The Story of a Boy's Hunger by Nigel Slater

Now with an updated foreword by Elizabeth Day and afterword by Nigel Slater, twenty years later Toast has become a classic food memoir, detailing all the food, recipes and cooking that have marked Nigel's passage from greedy schoolboy to great food writer.

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 incredibly moving and deliciously evocative memoir of childhood, adolescence and sexual awakening vividly recreates daily life in sixties and seventies suburban England.

Now featuring an introduction from Elizabeth Day, new photographs and a long afterword by Nigel Slater, this modern classic will continue to captivate readers for decades to come.

'Toast connects emotions, memory and taste buds. Genius' Sunday Times

'An ingenious and touching treat' TLS

'Exquisitely written . . . You read this remarkable memoir partly cringing, partly marvelling at Slater's hallucinogenic retrieval of times past. He is the Proust of the Nesquik era' Independent
