British Cuisine: __ on Toast

There’s something going on with British cuisine. Don’t get me wrong, it’s good. We haven’t had a bad meal yet (don’t believe the rumors). Not even close. But there’s this fascination with things on toast. We had grouse offal on toast at St. John Bread and Wine. We’ve had mushrooms on toast at The Fox. The other day, we were at a pub early and the staff dinner was something unidentifiable served on toast. Every menu contains some sort of “__ on toast” item.

Which makes me think of this old joke YouTube video of (fake) Gordon Ramsay’s beans on toast recipe. Enjoy!

Here’s one of his real recipes: elvers (baby British eels) on toast!
