National Melba Toast Day
Melba toast, a delicious little treat that is light and crispy and simply delightful to eat, is wonderful. You can eat it with peanut butter, jam or butter in many ways. It can be served with cream cheese or fruit bits. The light flavor is perfect for any food you put on top. National Melba Toast Day is a celebration of this delicious little treat and all that creativity can bring to it.
Melba Toast actually has a fascinating story! Melba Toast was made to honor the incredible Dame Nellie Melba. It’s not the only Melba Toast named after her. They were all created by Auguste Escoffier, a French chef. Melba Toast was born out of her love for toast but couldn’t find any thin enough to fit her taste. So the chef took up the challenge and created it. Nellie Melba was a favorite of the Chef, so she created some of the best treats you can imagine.
What else is Melba Toast good with? Peach Melba is another name for her. Peach Melba, a delicious sweet dessert, is made with raspberry sauce and vanilla ice-cream. It’s a delicious combination of flavors that is incredibly tasty. The light crunch of Melba Toast adds another dimension to the flavor.
National Melba Toast Day reminds us that even the simplest of things, such as a thin, crunchy toast, can have a story that is bigger than we realize. It’s only one chef’s love for his favorite singer. But who wouldn’t want it to be immortalized. Even if it’s in a dish.
Start by buying a Melba Toast package and eating it throughout the day. You don’t have to add anything to make it perfect. It’s just as good right out of the package! If you’re looking for something extra with your Melba Toast then add some jelly or your favorite topping. A little bit of mozzarella, a little bit of tomato, drizzled in olive oil or a sprinkle of hummus are some suggestions.
