Toast has been dubbed as “#basic” by our social media feeds and sarcastic cooking conversations; but since the beginning, I have been a die-hard. For me, it’s all about the quality of the ingredients that contribute to the combination: a rustic loaf with that gorgeous dark crust and pillow-y interior that toasts tremendously; a bright, smooth layer of spread; a sharp garnish.
