Poached egg on a bed of black gold…


Poached egg on a bed of black gold...

Breakfast this morning was one or the other – but instead I decided to bring them both together…the result was a luxurious feast for my early bird taste buds.

A slice of granary bread spread with a layer of crema di olive nere…black olive and caper paste from Carluccio’s…topped with an organic poached egg.

Decadent? Undoubtedly.

But simple and sophisticated at the same time. The photo is a tad blurred…possibly reflecting a glass of red too many the night before!

Anyway…I was unsure how the flavours would meld but they were perfect together.

I might even gild the lily next time and wedge in a sliver of black pudding.
