A Toast to Buttered Toast

I rarely dedicate an entire blog post, to a post made by someone else.

But this particular article resonated so strongly with me and seemed to express everything I thought and never got around to saying, but in a much better way than I could ever frame it.

So from the author of Dork: The Incredible Adventures of Robin Einstein Varghese here is an awesome piece on food (Sidin's first as far I can tell) :

A toast to buttered toast

I completely identified with :
"When you’re staying in hotels, for instance, tanking up on toast somehow seems a waste of all the other scrambled, fried, poached and griddled delicacies. Especially if a breakfast buffet is involved."

And his final advice for all:
"Scoop a generous helping of warm butter in one go, enough for the slice and then come. Then dab it strategically at one or two points towards one edge. Then work it across the whole slice in broad, confident strokes. Only in one direction please. Otherwise you will apply, remove, apply, remove, apply, remove like Pakistani life cricket ban. At the end take any excess butter and throw it away. Do not reuse. Especially don’t think you can move quickly and butter another slice with this. That is the kind of reckless, wasteful adventurism that led to Pune Warriors."
