At first I couldn’t get my head around this challenge – but for me as a chef of course beginnings has to be about breakfasts. I just love my breakfast. I really looking forward to every breakfast I have, home and away. The highlight of everyday, breakfast is the beginning of everyday.
Something I learned to enjoy while working in UK, before that I only had a cup of coffee in the morning. And I must say I’m a much happier person since I start eating breakfast.
My breakfast on my own is nearly the same everyday; big mug of coffee with warm milk, small glass of my favorite juice and mostly a sandwich with ham, cheese, tomato, sliced red onion and fresh basil. Lately I have starting eating it bed … watching some silly reality show, love it.
On the first day of the year I go the opposite – then I indulge myself with Egg Benedictine with grilled bacon, wilted fresh spinach and some chilled nice champagne – afterwards coffee and truffles.
When travelling – breakfast can be anything I fancy … love the American breakfast – love French toast … love the fresh fruit salad .. muffins .. pancakes .. name and I eat it. Same in UK – full English every morning at the hotels .. it’s like eating dinner 9am, but nothing can beat it. And the lush Germany hotel breakfast buffets – with everything under the sun! Then Denmark with their view on breakfast; a warm Danish pastry, ice cold snaps and a cigarette. Nothing for me, so I stick with the warm Danish.
So this is a gallery of breakfasts that I have eaten home and away, breakfasts dishes I have served guests at home ..

she looks before breakfast.”
