Why not, indeed?

Abene has been contacting local bread makers about using their products. She’s got a shiny new Waring toaster, a four-slotter. She’s lining up local producers of honey and peanut butter. She’s been crazy busy trying to start her first business.

What she hasn’t been doing is parsing any social, culinary or economic ramifications of simply offering perhaps the ultimate comfort food to hungry people.

“Anybody who knows me knows I’m not a pretentious person,” Abene said. “I’m not doing anything but trying to provide something good to eat.”

Amen.

I love toast. So, move over, cupcakes, pickle plates, beet variations, glorified kale and foams. Scram, “deconstructed” versions of all foods. I plan to belly up to that wonderful, sadly misunderstood toast bar. Make mine a double.
