Today's breakfast - Poached Eggs on Portobello Mushrooms with Goat's Cheese from Miss Dahl's Voluptuous Delights by Sophie Dahl.
First, a word on Ms Dahl's kitchen. I fell in love with that kitchen when her show was on air a couple of years ago. While I liked the TV series, the cookery book and her wardrobe, that kitchen was the star of the show for me. The tiles against the Neisha Crossland wallpaper, that white AGA, her yellow KitchenAid Artisan mixer...all those vintage coffee pots and those "what, these flowers I just threw in a jug?" flower arrangements... Oh, I do love it when food and interior design meet in such a splendidly vintage way.
|Sophie, I love you, but I would suggest that that dress is inappropriate cooking attire.|
I don't care. I still love the make believe kitchen.
It's a really simple meal - just grill a mushroom and top with goat's cheese and a poached egg. Pretty self explanatory really! It's more filling than it looks and quite rich so one is probably enough. It is quite delicious - the runny egg yolk and goats cheese are heaven on top of the mushroom.
And, as it's Mothering Sunday here in the UK today, I wish a very happy Mother's Day to any Mums out there. My day started rather earlier than I would have liked as Bella was very excited about giving me the card she'd made at school. But what a nice way to start the day.
