History of Melba Toast Day
Actually the Melba Toast was created with an interesting story behind it! In addition to Melba Toast there are many products was created in honor of the wonderful Dame Nellie Melba, even that both Melba Toast and dishes in honor of Dame Nellie Melba were named atfer her and created by the same person French Chef Auguste Escoffier. Melba Toast was created because she really loves toast, but couldn't find anything thin enough to suit her taste, so the chef took on the challenge and put together all together. The chef is clearly enamored with the wonderful Nellie Melba, and as a result she has some of the most delightful dishes you could hope for.
You know what else Melba Toast goes with? Peach Melba, another dish named after her. Such as Peach Melba, made with peaches, raspberry sauce, and vanilla ice cream, this is a wonderfully sweet dessert. Everything comes together to taste amazing, and the mild crunch of Melba Toast is just the perfect way to add another dimension to its flavor.
Melba Toast Day is here to remind us that every thing has its own story, like a thin crusty toast, even the most seemingly innocuous little thing, can have a story behind it that's bigger than we know. Sure, it's just a chef's homage to his favorite singer, but who wouldn't want to be immortal? Even if it's in a food.
