Last night I got all my bike stuff together ready for the 1st ride in of the New Year, despite having to go back to work I was looking forward to the ride blow the cobwebs off. I was therefore somewhat disappointed to wake up to a hurricane blowing outside and ditched the ride which would otherwise have been like the Dutch guy in the video in my previous post. I consoled myself with the mighty poached egg for breakfast – the epitome of fast food. I recently had a bit of a revelation in the cooking of the poached egg thanks to Jamie Oliver. What I now do is line a ramekin or other such vessel with a big sheet of cling-film, leaving plenty to hang over the sides, and then add some seasoning and flavour. So today I put some salt and pepper, thyme and chilli flakes into the bottom, then cracked the egg and then some more flavour on top. Bring the cling film together, twist it and tie a knot and then poach as normal. When done just tip the egg out of the cling film and hey presto spicy herby poached egg – yum.
