It was easter morning, and our first music of the day was French.
I would be serving a roast later, so I skipped the bacon part of our bacon and eggs, substituting some juicy lightly dressed red cress from Dave Harris’s Max Creek Hatchery.
The eggs themselves, from Millport Dairy Farm, enjoyed a scattering of red-vein sorrel from Norwich Meadows Farm, and the ‘un-toast’ was slices of an organic multigrain baguette from Bread Alone.
It looks like I used a bit of Aleppo pepper on the eggs, but also a more conventional ground black pepper, which should probably be regarded as heresy.
- the wonderful music was André Caplet’s ‘Le Miroir de Jésus (Mystères de Rosaire)’ [described as, “..l’un de ces chefs-d’oeuvre atypiques, fruits de l’esprit nouveau qui soufflait dans les premières décennies du XXe siècle…” – Le Monde], in a performance with Esther Choi, mezzo-soprano, the Hanoverian Girl’s Choir, Teresa Zimmermann, harp, and the ensemble Il Gioco col suono, heard streaming from Yle Klassinen
