‘Post-operative toast,’ voted best meal of all time


Having pieces of heavily buttered toast after a hospital procedure has been voted best ever meal in a new Channel Four poll.

The Channel Four programme, which airs on Tuesday at 8 pm, counts down a list of the top 100 best meals of all time.

Eating toast after an operation finished ahead of Lobster Thermidor, with Chicken Tikka Masala finishing third. Toast eater, Peter Thape has eaten toast most of his life, but accepts that post-operative toast is the bomb.

‘My wife was in labour for 16 hours. After little Bobby popped out we had round after round of heavily buttered toast,’ said Thape.

‘It was probably the happiest moment of my life.  I still think about that toast,’ added Thape.
