Yet another oeuf cocotte
I think that an Oeuf en Cocotte has become one of my favourite comfort foods. I love that fact that there are a multitude of goodies that can lurk beneath the golden yolk crown. As long as I have a couple of fresh eggs and a slurp of double cream a satisfying and tasty dish can be concocted and importantly today, it’s not too trying when the thought of toiling over a hot stove fills you with dread. This time I had a few slivers of smoked salmon and a slice of buttered bread to anoint with the unctuous creamy eggy mixture. I’m also hoping that eating off my ‘Baci di Dama’ emblazoned tray from Harvey Nichols will somehow make me feel much better - and actually it does!
