Easy-going film about a boy discovering his passion for cooking. With classic English dishes, such as chicken in a basket and pork pie and with a great sixties soundtrack of Dusty Springfield. British comedy with a laugh and a tear and fluffy as a meringue.

good film

Toast! (SJ Clarkson, 2010) is a comical coming of age drama about the British cook Niger Slater (Freddie Highmore). Nigels mother does not share his culinary fascination. Her highlight is: toast! After the death of his mother, his father falls in love with the housekeeper (Helena Bonham Carter). She cooks one tasty dish after another. But Nigel can also cook well. Who will win the love of his father? Go back in time to England at the end of the sixties with beautiful images and soundtrack by Dusty Springfield.

great timing

What you see is what you eat, at the same time. The culinary script of Cinema Culinair is leading for the chef and his crew: timing is of the essence. One example. If the leading character in the film eats a bit of his pork pieole meuniere at 15 minutes and 37 seconds, we want our guests to do the same. One minute earlier or later makes all the difference between good and fabulous! In the end it’s all about the extrasensory sensation; you see, hear, taste, smell and feel the film.

When is the next cinema culinair of this film? 

Toast is one of our specials. We will screen the film once every two or three years.
