Remarkable' Observer

'Acutely observed, poignant and beautifully written' Daily Telegraph

My mother is scraping a piece of burned toast out of the kitchen window, a crease of annoyance across her forehead. This is not an occasional occurrence. My mother burns the toast as surely as the sun rises each morning.

Toast is Nigel Slaters award-winning biography of a childhood remembered through food. Whether recalling his mothers surprisingly good rice pudding, his fathers bold foray into spaghetti and his dreaded Boxing Day stew, or such culinary highlights as Arctic Roll and Grilled Grapefruit (then considered something of a status symbol in Wolverhampton), this remarkable memoir vividly recreates daily life in 1960s suburban England.

Likes and dislikes, aversions and sweet-toothed weaknesses form a fascinating backdrop to Nigel Slaters incredibly moving and deliciously evocative portrait of childhood, adolescence and sexual awakening.
