  Library Journal Review

Artisanal toast, a culinary trend that elicits both skepticism and intrigue, inspired a segment on NPR's This American Life and graced the January cover of Bon Appétit magazine. Given the media frenzy surrounding the topic, this toast cookbook from writer and bottarga producer -Donenfeld (The Bangala Table) is sure to be one of several forthcoming titles on the subject. After introducing eight toasting methods (e.g., herb oven toasting, Parmesan pan toasting) and a lone gluten-free bread recipe, the author presents 70 bread-based creations that can be served as breakfasts, snacks, hors d'oeuvres, or light meals. Her inventive toast toppings-including smoked trout and grapefruit, harissa scramble, and spice-roasted radishes and mint feta yogurt-are primarily variants of fish, egg, or cheese on toast, and they showcase a wide range of techniques (e.g., curing salmon, making homemade ricotta). VERDICT -Donenfeld's thoughtful treatment of this trendy subject will please readers who love toast and crave crostini. © Copyright 2015.
