When it comes to the most important meal of the day, this is the book to end all books--a delectable selection of recipes, advice, illustrations, and miscellany. The recipes in this robust volume begin with the iconic full English--which can mean anything as long as there are eggs, bacon, sausages, mushrooms, tomatoes, black pudding, bread, potatoes, and beans involved--before moving confidently on to more exotic fare such as kedgeree, omelet Arnold Bennett, waffles, American muffins, porridge, roast peaches, chana masala from India, borek from the Balkans, and pÃ£o de queijo from South America. There are also useful tips like the top songs to boil an egg to, and how to store mushrooms. Interspersing the practicalities of putting together a good breakfast are essays and miscellanies from a crack team of eggsperts--among them H. P. Seuss, Blake Pudding, Poppy Tartt, and Malcolm Eggs--who offer their musings on such varied topics as forgotten breakfast cereals of the 1980s, famous last breakfasts, and Freud's famous Breakfast Dream. Whether you are a cereal purist, a dedicated fan of eggs and bacon, or a breakfast aficionado with a world view, The Breakfast Bible is the most important book of the day.
