More toast is eaten in this country than any other food, yet it has been shunned by recipe books and ignored by history. "Toast" is here to set the record straight. Funnier than Delia Smith, and with more recipes than "Longitude", "Toast" tells you everything you could possibly want to know about the nation's favourite fast food: learn why the Victorians thought toast-flavoured water was good for your health, marvel at Mrs Beton's "toast sandwich" (a piece of toast between to slices of bread) and get needlessley embroiled in the Great Marmite Debate. With over 30 recipes, "Toast" takes a satirical look at our fondness with the greatest of British fast foods.

Publisher and industry reviews
How to crack a safe, escape from Alcatraz, get the girl and live the action hero's life. This handbook comes from the creators of The Worst Case Scenario Handbook. The book of the internet phenomenon www.framley.co.uk - a spoof of a local newspaper which quickly became a favourite when it appeared online last year.
UK Kirkus review
This is a concise and light-hearted look at a food staple loved by generations of Britons. Parker supplies a history of toast, a look at the folklore surrounding it and finally some recipes, including the classic beans and cheese on toast but also some more unusual suggestions such as crushed black pepper on toast and cinnamon toast. Handsomely illustrated throughout, the book contains much useless but surprisingly interesting information such as the date the first toaster was invented (1893), the advantages and disadvantages of grills and the reason the author loathes sandwich toasters. An ideal present for any toast fanatics of your acquaintance (Kirkus UK)
