Mother’s Day Breakfast

May 10, 2009 · 6 comments

Last night’s dinner was for her birthday, but today is Mother’s Day, so I had to cook breakfast for She Who Must Be Obeyed: thick cut applewood sliced bacon, toasted sourdough bread, and scrambled eggs. Not just any scrambled eggs, but Gordon Ramsay’s Sublime Scrambled Eggs:

I skipped the mushrooms and tomatoes — we’ve had our fill of full English breakfasts for a while.

I didn’t “give it to her in bed.” This is a family-friendly blog. and He Who Must Not Be Ignored was already awake.

What exactly is “Creme Fresh”?

It’s creme fraiche, pronounced “fresh.” To make it more confusing, it’s French for “fresh cream.” It’s actually the equivalent of sour cream, but not as sour as what we get here. You can find creme fraich at Whole Foods or other foodie outlets.

My mother’s day meal was at a family Turkish restaurant which was overcrowded. Emma had seen a menu on the table for this particular Brookline place. This reminded her of an episode in Full House, so we went.
After she spat the grape leaf rolls into her napkin and ordered pasta with sauce on the side, we waited for over an hour to get our check. While we were waiting sweet sounds and scents of a flatulent customer, serenaded us all through our painful wait.

Mother’s day dining outside of the house is always a losing proposition. Brunches are always mobbed, and restaurant dinners have “Mothers Day” menus with limited choices. It’s all about turning tables as quickly as possible.

Unless it’s Sofra, Oleanna, or Cafe Kiraz, you couldn’t get me inside a Turkish restaurant.

Sounds awesome. I’ll try and give those eggs a try soon. When in London, my dad and I ate at GR’s Claridges, and it was quite good. He’s a hoot…

You definitely want to make the eggs.

So not only did I miss you in London, but you ate at Claridges. Ramsay’s #2, Mark Sargeant, is the chef de cuisine there. When we return to London I plan to eat at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay at Royal Hospital Road.
