Dave talks with pastry chef Darren Purchese  about his new book  Chefs Eat Toasties Tooode to one of his favourite foods: the toasted sandwich. Darren turns the dial up to 10 with his unique take on everyone’s favourite Sunday night dinner (or breakfast, or lunch or midnight snack).

In , Darren reveals 50 of his masterful creations. Catering to all manner of toastie cooking methods, readers will be maestros of the toastie grill, pan, oven, and of course the sandwich press in no time.

Darren delivers creative combinations, alongside pimped out classics: from Gorgonzola, pumpkin, maple-cured bacon & caramelised onion with maple syrup; to old favourites like the Ploughman’s smoked leg ham, cheddar & chutney. He has also developed sweet recipes for the ultimate in comforting indulgence, such as Dark Chocolate, olive oil & Murray River Salt Flakes; or Coffee-infused French toast with banana, nut crumple & yoghurt; or an Apple & blackberry jaffle with custard.

And for those wishing to take their toasties to truly new heights, there is a line-up of sides, sauces and dressings to compliment the most accomplished of toasties. Think Pear & walnut chutney; Dill pickles; homemade Potato chips; Candied orange slices, and Rose raspberries.
