Yes, you are in the right place, and no, we haven’t gotten into the bookselling business—at least not yet. Rudy and I have been talking for awhile now about introducing a few series to our blog that might be an interesting way to explore the world.
I can’t recall how exactly, but the Jules Verne classic, Around the World in 80 Days popped into the conversation. Sadly, neither of us had read the book, but as anyone interested in knowledge, we began reading about the book. But, just because we hadn’t read the book didn’t mean we didn’t have an idea what it was about. In fact, ask most people in Europe or the United States and they can give you a pretty good idea of the story.
So, how does this 1873 French novel fit into our plans at Toastilla? Well, glad you asked! We plan on following Phileas Fogg from London and across the rest of the world, as if Phileas Fogg had with him a Toastilla. While we may not be offering a 20,000 pound wager for the adventure, we will offer you some tasty meals to try out in your Toastilla.
First stop, London.
Who doesn’t love fish and chips? Well, today we are going to look at a modern way to look at fish and chips, as well as introduce you to an interesting way to use your Toastilla.
One thing that many people don’t realize is how well your Toastilla can cook frozen foods such as fish sticks, tater tots, and pizza rolls. The trick to cooking frozen foods is to run the food through two toaster cycles.
With this recipe you can use either potato chips or tater tots for the “chips.” We recommend that you make a side of mayo and vinegar mixed to your tangy liking and chill before adding to the Toastilla.
It’s a simple recipe, and if you want to authenticate it a bit you can grab a sheet of newspaper instead of a napkin and do it up all fancy like.
Follow us in a few days to see if Phileas Fogg makes it to his next destination—Egypt.
