"Toast was a big item in my mother's culinary pharmacopeia. At first it was served plain and dry, but that was soon followed by crisp, sweet cinnamon toast, they baby-bland toast that tasted soothingly of fresh air. Thick slices of French toast, crisp and golden outside but moist and eggy within, would probably come next, always topped with a melting knob of sweet butter and a dusting of confectioner's sugar. I knew i was close to recovery when i got the toast I liked best -- almost-burned rye bread toast covered with salt butter."
Mimi Sheraton, food author, critic

 

“Do you know on this one block you can buy croissants in five different places? There's one store called Bonjour Croissant. It makes me want to go to Paris and open up a store called Hello Toast.”
Fran Lebowitz, journalist

 

“Unbuttered toast is a substance half complete, and to be forced to eat it in that state is necessarily to feel deprived.”
