This is a coming of age with a difference – a culinary pilgrimage through the extraordinary childhood of award-winning food writer Nigel Salter. Moving and humorous in turn, it captures the tastes, treats and torments of daily life in 60s suburban England.

Synopsis

Toast by Nigel Slater

An autobiography of a top food writer. It details the food, recipes and cooking that have marked his passage from greedy schoolboy to great food writer. It is also a catalogue of how the British have eaten over the past several decades.

Reviews

'A talent for prose as simple and pleasurable as his recipes.â Sunday Telegraph

'Moving, funny and finely crafted, it's a real gem.' Independent
