"This tour of toast takes what was once basic fare and flips it over to reveal, with both whimsy and elegance, how to dress up a simple piece of bread. From the breakfast table to the international table, from the grill to the shallow fryer, here you will find brilliant why-didn't-I-think-of-that toast that reaches far beyond butter and jam.
