Here at Fed up & Drunk, we’ve made no secret of the fact that we heart breakfast. Be it a massive stack of pancakes (yum), full-blown fry up (yes please) or humble jam on toast (classic), the mere thought of this morning meal is what has me crawling out of my beloved thirteen-tog sanctuary each daybreak.
If there’s one thing we love more than breakfast though, it’s (obviously) blogging. So, imagine our squeals of delight when we woke up to the news that Seb Emina (also known as Malcolm Eggs), creator of The London Review of Breakfasts blog, was teaming up with Bloomsbury to publish The Breakfast Bible. Within its almighty pages, this book holds a wealth of divine knowledge, supreme guidance, and righteous advice that (I reckon) we could all do with in our lives – especially first thing in the morning. Packed with recipes for everything from ultimate full-English breakfasts and American muffins to Indian channa masala and Chinese baozi, this precious tome more than deserves its place among your cookery collection.
Far from just a collection of recipes though, The Breakfast Bible is a mixed bag of methods, essays and amusing musings. Among the volume’s chuckle-inducing leaves, writers chew over a range of topics like forgotten breakfast cereals of the 1980s, famous last breakfasts and Freud’s Breakfast Dream.
All in all, The Breakfast Bible is a general catalogue of literary wit, culinary creativity and foodie fervour that we just cannot wait to get our teeth into. Rejoice, for breakfast time need never be dull again.
The Breakfast Bible is out now – visit Bloomsbury for more information.
