Nigel Slater's Toast

Toast vividly recreates Nigel Slater’s childhood through the tastes and smells he shares with his mother, culminating in the young Nigel’s escape to London. From making the perfect sherry trifle, through the playground politics of sweets, the rigid rules of restaurant dining, and a domestic war over cakes, this is a moving and evocative tale of love, loss and...toast.

At various points during Nigel Slater’s Toast audience members will be invited to try tastes from Nigel’s childhood. Please note that food items may contain the following:

  • Nuts
  • Peanuts
  • Soya
  • Gluten (wheat)
  • Dairy, including Milk
