This week’s chapter in Sapori, my virtual cook book, is devoted to my all-time favourite meal of the day and that’s good old breakfast. I have a tiny inkling that perhaps my adoration of this meal is somewhat motivated by the bubbles in an ice cold bottle of Pongracz, Krone or Asti Spumante ……..ya think? With spring in the air and summer on the way, this is the ideal time of year to invite good mates over for an early morning degustation of eggs and champagne.
Not a birthday, public holiday or celebration of any description goes past in la casa Tripepi without a breakfast. Trickyricky just loves having his boys together with a hearty breakfast at the table.
Word Cup 2011 starts next Friday – so breakfasts are going to be the best way to get together and support our awesome Bokke. South Africa would smile from ear to ear should the Bokke raise that Webb Ellis Trophy for the third time!!!! I have some awesome Office Picnic ideas for your next week – so keep an eye out for some supporter grub!
