Fun Food Holidays™ March 23rd is National Melba Toast Day

National Melba Toast Day

Who would have thought that the melba toast you buy at the supermarket emerged out of the lifestyles of the rich and famous? According to lore, the tiny thin, crispy toasts were first prepared by famed chef Auguste Escoffier for opera singer Dame Nellie Melba, and were named by the emminent hotel magnate Cesar Ritz. Talk about a pedigree!
