I am loving doing my challenges. The Daring Kitchen is one of the most popular challenges for either cooks or bakers. And, in fact, Shelley of C Mom Cook has included a couple of pictures of my boys in her latest Food Talk article on getting wee ones to help in the kitchen.
Jenn and Jill have challenged The Daring Cooks to learn to perfect the technique of poaching an egg. They chose Eggs Benedict recipe from Alton Brown, Oeufs en Meurette from Cooking with Wine by Anne Willan, and Homemade Sundried Tomato & Pine Nut Seitan Sausages (poached) courtesy of Trudy of Veggie num num.
I chose to do a version of eggs florentine for this challenge and was really chuffed at how easy it actually is to make a Hollandaise sauce and to poach fairly good looking eggs. Usually I leave this dish to Steve to make but I guess I have no excuse for doing it myself now. I LOVE spinach and this makes one of my favourite breakfasts.
Two eggs each for Mummy and Daddy and one each for the kids. I will definitely be poaching more eggs from now on. And without using the microwave and the plastic poacher thingy!
