When she dies of asthma Nigel is left with a distant father but worse is to come when the 'common' Mrs. Joan Potter arrives as the Slaters' cleaner. Nigel fears,rightly,that her aim is to be the next Mrs. Slater and soon he has a new stepmother and is whisked away to the country. Joan is,however,a superb cook but this only makes for rivalry as Nigel,the only boy in his cookery class at secondary school,competes with her to find the way to his father's heart. A weekend job in a pub kitchen introduces Nigel to an older boy,another great cook and gay like himself ,who gives him the confidence and inspiration to leave home after his father's death and head for the hotel kitchens of London.根據英國著名廚神施奈傑(Nigel Slater)的回憶錄【Toast】改編,亦是他的個人事蹟。故事 講述奈傑由幼年至青少年人的 成長故事,飽覽由60年代的食物,嘗盡甜、酸、苦、辣的百 味。奈傑自幼便愛上了食物, 幼年家中的食物點燃了他的食 慾,他愛讀烹飪書籍,又愛蹓 蹥不同店舖,可是母親一死, 令他傷心了好一陣子,而卜太 太以清新可喜的檸檬蛋白脆 餅,羸得奈傑父親的厚愛。可 是奈傑與卜太太爭持不休,直 至奈傑父親死後,奈傑才能勇 闖倫敦,打開了食物的天地…

Good thriller movie
It is a surprise this movie did not get much attention. It is an above average thriller movie with good performances by its leads.

Happy Sad Story
This movie fills me with tears most of the time. The characters in the story are very well developed and the baby in the movie is very cute too!

It's okay, I guess
I find the pace of the movie a bit slow. Overall it has a nice story, but I can't seem to find myself to like the whole movie. Something is lacking for me, maybe I just can't identify with the characters in the movie. The movie also has a nice soundtrack.

Well made Drama
If you are looking for a lot of action this is not your kind of movie. It is a very well made drama about an atrocity carried out by the Russian army on the Polish army when it invaded Poland in 1940. All the actors give a very strong performance and while it may be a little slow at times it is well worth watching for those interested in this period of history. Sound and picture quality are very good.
