Bread and butter

After coming across a five star review of food writer Michael Booth's latest I took a gander at his blog where I discovered that:
.... the latest food trend in SE Asia: buttered bread. I am not making this up.

Plain, white, sliced bread, just like your common friends used to eat when you went round their's for tea in 1976, with cheap marg and a limited range of toppings. They can't get enough of it in Thailand.

"Bread and jam" is the height of exoticism in Bangkok. I am absolutely delighted by this development.
