It's a really super read, with lots of interesting recipes, and is now in my house in Brittany.
I wanted to start with something simple, because I think that apparently easy dishes can be far more challenging to get correct then seemingly more complex recipes. So I decided to make Eggs in Pots, you can find the recipe in her book or on the BBC website here.
I have made them several times, the heart shaped egg is a more recent effort here in England.
This is a tasty meal, which would be ideal for a light lunch, or mid week supper. I suppose if you felt very decedent it would make a fabulous weekend breakfast as well.
I bought the salmon caviar in France, where it is widely available in supermarkets. It has a long shelf life, so is another item to add to the shopping list if you are in Europe and coming back by Channel ports!
When I go to France in the summer I will do a post on things to bring home from France, there are so many lovely ingredients in the supermarkets that are not widely available in England.
I warn you, if you make these eggs you're bound to love them and they will become a "go to" recipe when you want something simple to cook and beautiful in both taste and look!
