Breakfast . . .


I love elaborate breakfasts, but a couple of simple poached or soft boiled eggs, a slice or two of buttered toast, and a cup of good coffee is the most satisfying breakfast of all. When it comes to eggs, do as Julia does – bring water to a boil and gently slide in your eggs, cooking uncovered for 6 minutes. Then drain, cover with cold water and let sit for 1 minute before serving in an egg cup with ample salt and pepper.

The coffee is equally simple: individual drip cups, fresh Blue Bottle beans, and a long dash of cream.
