Whilst on holiday, we discovered The Crumpet Shop in Seattle. A charming little breakfast joint near Pike Place Market, it serves a cornucopia of crumpets to kick-start the day. We tried a few, the stand out being green eggs and ham, a clear nod to the classic Dr. Seuss book.
On returning home, we gave this a go … it’s now one of our go to breakfast dishes.
It’s said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Yet in our house it was seldom more than cereal or toast, downed rapidly with a morning coffee before rushing out to work.
In an effort to breakfast less ordinary, I decided to start doing some more interesting recipes. Starting with some tasty banana and blueberry French toast.
Whilst traveling through Vietnam a few years ago, we spent a day in the beautiful city of Hoi An. Famous for silk production and Lunar celebrations alike, it is also home to one of the country’s most iconic dishes … chicken rice, or Cơm Gà Hội An.
