Thread Name: Upon a tree a cuckoo/Auf einem Baum ein Kuckuck
Subject: RE: Upon a tree a cuckoo/Auf einem Baum ein Kuckuck
Joy, my gastronomic comrade, you wrote a week ago:
'The idea of toasting/grilling the food ON the toast could be achieved in any kind of oven -- like pizza. So as long as we've had ovens and bread I'm thinking we could have had "food on toast".'
Slow-burn response [not perhaps the most felicitous of phrases in the context] of the sort I specialise in to the fury of my friends:
No — that is not 'toasting', which is browning by a fire or under a grill or in a toaster — that is BAKING. A pizza, correctly, is *baked*, not *toasted*.
Am I not right?
