Plenty of subject matters brewing at Toast

11.00AM: There was a bit of "yolking" around this morning as Mayor Richie Williamson conceded Mark Hackett's scrambled eggs were superior to his.

Mr Hackett and Cr Williamson were given a few minutes and the basics - eggs, creams, salt, pepper and herbs - to whip up their best version.

While Cr Williamson's were dubbed "creamier", Mr Hackett's were described as being more "like eggs", giving him the victory.

This reporter's opinion? Fat is flavour and the creamier Cr Williamson's version topped the taste test.

10.00AM: It's all happening down at Toast on Prince Street.

There's acoustic music out the front, there's tasting samples and it looks like there will be some cooking going on out the front very soon.
