After Nigel's mother dies, his father begins to spend his evenings with newly divorced cleaner Mrs Potter, whose signature lemon meringue pie is a hit with Mr Slater. The two embark on a relationship, and soon move to the country with Nigel. Nigel can't stand his new step mom. He finds solace in home economics classes at school, and uses his improved culinary skills to gain his father's affections, thus becoming Mrs. Potter's rival. The excessive food causes Mr Slater to gain weight and become more temperamental. Nigel soon lands a job in the kitchen of his local pub to avoid Mrs. Potter, and falls in love with the landlady's son; the relationship is cut short when the latter leaves town. When Mr. Slater dies, Nigel's mind is set as he packs a bag for London, leaving Mrs. Potter behind, and arrives at The Savoy Hotel where he is offered a job as a chef. ...Toast (2010) (Blu-Ray)

I was not disappointed. The picture quality and sound track are superb and really make this brilliant comedy-drama shine.
I really can't fathom why the BBC doesn't release its Hi-Def dramas on Blu-ray in the UK, when they are readily available elsewhere in Europe.
I already have the UK DVD, but this German release Blu-ray version has far superior video quality and is well worth the outlay if you can find a copy.
Nigel is quite a sympathetic character but at times a complete snob. and an unforgiving snob at that.
supposed to be based on truth - a lovely period piece which shows in the cooking especially
