Have you seen the new Bon Appetit Magazine?
As a gift to myself I got a subscription to Bon Appetit for Christmas and my first issue arrived last weekend. Toast is what’s on the cover (in case you were wondering). Not just any toast, but fancy toast. Which seems like kind of a silly thing to be dedicating precious cover space to but come to think of it—good toast is good.
It got me inspired and I made toast for you. Mine does not include labneh or honey or toasted nuts or seeds (although that all sounds delicious) but it does include avocado and who in the world doesn’t love that?!!!
Its so funny to me that what was once the cheap, fast snack of every Mexican line cook everywhere has risen to such cult status. I guess just like ironic mustaches and the overuse of Sriracha, the prevalence of avocado toast is one more thing we have to thank our hipster friends for.
And with good reason—avocado on toast is good, and especially avocado on beer cornbread toast, topped with crispy pancetta and a poached egg. If you make the cornbread ahead of time this is a legitimate weekday breakfast.
Thanks, Bon Appetite. I #cookedthecover….kind of.
And check out my friend Martine, she really did #cookthecover.
