Happiness is a slice of bread, no? Whether it's a tartine, open-faced sandwich or a hearty slice of cult-fave avocado toast, food just tastes better when it's served up on a crunchy baguette or piece of seven-grain.

Writer and chef Jill Donenfeld is the ultimate toast guru. Her book, Better On Toast (available today), features 70 different recipes for the perfect topping configurations: from marinated shrimp, celery, and green olives, to nectarine Caprese. Not only can she cook up a mean slice, she also knows exactly where to find a little dash of toast heaven right here in New York.

To celebrate the simple — yet oh-so-delicious — dishes, Donenfeld scoured the city for the craziest, most irresistible toast combinations. Ready for April to be the month of toast? Go on, let the loaf guide you home.
