Why ‘Eggs on Toast’?
The name comes from the fact that I’m often told by my Mother that as a toddler she’d find me frying my own eggs in the kitchen – much, I’m sure, to social services delight! I’m not sure I ever made toast to go with them but my love of eggs and the delicious simplicity they represent continues!
Why the blog?
I work a busy job, sometimes with funny hours, and I find cooking, alongside my other hobbies of running and boardgames, a relaxing way to unwind.
I thought, therefore, that I’d start a blog that essentially chronicles what I cook day-to-day as a memento for me. Hopefully it will be a fun project, and maybe someone else will get some joy from it as well.
Why do I cook what I cook?
There are a lot of flavours I’ve tried or grown up with that I really enjoy – and I love experimenting to try and re-create those experiences.
Be it the ‘cooked by a toddler’ fried eggs, all the homegrown vegetables my mum used to make me eat from our allotment, or more recent experiences travelling in Asia and South America. Increasingly I relish really fresh salads, fish and seafood, and strong but relatable flavours like the sour lime, the heat of chilli and the saltiness of a quality cheese.
Healthy food is delicious, but this isn’t a #cleaneating blog
I cook what I enjoy and what I want to eat. I do have a focus on what I perceive as healthy food – for me that is food that uses a lot of fresh fruit and veg, wholegrains and healthy oils, good fibre and protein content, with minimal sugar and is generally tending towards vegetarian/pescatarian.
I do, however, love ice cream, beer and duck…
