The Capricorn [*] Toaster

by Kirsten Dalenske

The word "toast" derives from the Latin "torrere" or "tostus" -- to scorch or to burn.

The ancient Romans spread the custom of toasting bread across Europe, although it is believed that the ancient Egyptians discovered toasting, as they are credited with the first breads.

Before the advent of electricity, a variety of methods were used to make toast, including placing bread on hot stones to toasting forks and bread holders held in a camp fire.
