What's better than reading a great book about food? Getting to read it and eat many of the tasty dishes mentioned in the memoir with some new friends. Last night, was Community Tap and Table's Foodie Book Club night and we discussed, cooked and tasted our way through Nigel Slater's bestseller, "Toast."

“It is impossible not to love someone who makes toast for you. ”
 ~ Nigel Slater

Since pictures oftentimes tell a better story than just words, I snapped a few photos of the various dishes we had:

Cream Soda Cocktail: St Germain Elderflower Liquor, Vanilla Cream Soda, and Lime Juice over ice. Quite scrumptious!

Toast: Fontina Cheese w/ Caramelized Leeks and Mashed Peas atop toasted bread.

Tea Sandwiches.

Hearty Lamb Stew with Sweet Apricots

Pommes Dauphinoise: Baked potato slices layered in cream and milk.

Trifle: Berries soaked in Rosewater, layered with Ginger Whipped Cream and Booze Soaked Ladyfingers. Finished with Blueberry Marshmallow Cream.

September's book choice will be, "Four Fish" by Paul Greenberg. For more information contact Community Tap and Table.

    I think I need to get this book. I loved the movie. Everything looks good except I'm not sure about the mashed potatoes on toast.
