Truffled eggs, a once a year special treat

Take two eggs stored in a sealed container of carnaroli risotto rice with a big fat truffle. Wait a few days.

I made risotto out of some of the rice for last nights dinner. served with a good sprinkling of truffle and a side of steamed broccoli.

When the time is right for a special breakfast. Crack the truffle infused eggs into a bowl with a good dollop of fresh cream, add some real salt and freshly ground pepper. Then grate a generous amount of truffle into the bowl, whisk it all up and pour it into a moderately hot pan greased with a knob of butter and keep it all moving gently until it starts to firm up a little. Pour it over toast and take the time to savour it all in its sinful richness and mouthwatering flavour and aroma.

For a second course, we had freshly home made seville marmalade and a bowl of hot milky coffee.


We might just want to go back to bed. but we have 10 potters coming to pack and fire our wood kiln for a weekend workshop. So there is no time to dally.
