Who Invented Avocado Toast?

Do you who invented avocado toast?  Attributing the invention of avocado toast to a single person is quite tricky, as its history stretches back further than most might think. Here's a breakdown of the different perspectives:

Modern version: Chef Bill Granger is often credited with putting avocado toast on a modern café menu in 1993 at his Sydney restaurant. However, earlier mentions exist in Australia. OR Cafe Gitane is credited by some for bringing the “Instagrammable” version of the dish to the United States.

Earlier versions: Newspaper references had recipes for mashed avocado on toast appear in 1920s California and 1929 Brisbane, Australia. Historical context evidence suggests similar practices in Mexico (where avocados originated) and Chile (enjoying mashed avocado on bread since the 1800s).

While Bill Granger popularized the modern version, the concept of avocado on toast has existed for much longer, with origins likely dating back to Central and South America. It's more accurate to say the dish evolved over time and in different places, rather than having a single inventor. Some avocados come from California and in fact, there are a few famous avocado farmers like Tom Selleck and Jamie Foxx.

Avocados can help lower your cholesterol, can be substituted for butter, and are rich in fiber.  Avocados contain vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin E, potassium, magnesium, and folate. Avocados are also a powerhouse when it comes to anti-aging with all of their healthy fats, vitamins, and nutrients. A lot of people even use avocado oil for their hair. This multi-purpose fruit needs to be in your diet. We hope that this Avocado Toast Toppings post inspires you. Happy cooking!
