In an interview with Vogue, Sasaki revealed that this art of toasting emerged during the lockdown period due to the coronavirus. Working from home left her lethargic and reduced her commuting hours, prompting her to try something new with the extra time. “I wanted to get up early in the morning and create a morning routine that would excite me. That’s when I started the art of toasting for breakfast,” she said in the interview. Moreover, she had been eating bread since the day she was born and it was the perfect medium for her art.
