Private viewing

Wolverhampton,1967: nine-year-old Nigel Slater loves his mother though 
she is a hopeless cook, her finest offering being toast whilst he has great culinary aspirations. 
When she dies of asthma Nigel is left with a distant father but worse is to come 
when the 'common' Mrs. Joan Potter arrives as the Slaters' cleaner. 
Nigel fears, rightly, that her aim is to be the next Mrs. Slater and 
soon he has a new stepmother and is whisked away to the country. 
Joan is, however, a superb cook but this only makes for rivalry as Nigel, 
the only boy in his cookery class at secondary school, 
competes with her to find the way to his father's heart. 
A weekend job in a pub kitchen introduces Nigel to an older boy, 
another great cook and gay like himself, who gives him the confidence and 
inspiration to leave home after his father's death and 
head for the hotel kitchens of London.

Based on the bittersweet story of food writer Nigel Slater's childhood,
and set to the songs of Dusty Springfield,
"Toast" is a delicious love letter to the tastes and smells that a young boy
associates with his journey into adulthood.
