Last week it was Edd's hot cross buns, this week it's Nigella's Turkish Eggs, it looks like a lot of tasty food from the U.K. is making its way here. Nigella has a new book called At My Table that comes out here in April and like in all her books, she manages to make tasty food, easy once again with her little kitchen tricks.
At first I debated on a savory or sweet selection to pick but Nigella suggested I start with the Turkish eggs and I'm glad I listened. I'm usually suspicious of eggs and yogurt together and I've always avoided preparing and serving them together in one dish. In this recipe, Nigella uses a water baths to whip up a creamy and luxurious garlic flavored yogurt that is then served with a poached egg (she likes lemon juice instead of vinegar which gives a much more pleasant fragrance) and some toasted buttered sourdough slices and before I forget a generous drizzle of browned butter seasoned with Aleppo pepper.
You can get her recipe here. The book also has a very easy recipe for a chocolate cake that you can whip up quickly and then frost it with pretty much anything you desire. There's a Queen of Puddings that has caught my eye too and I think I will make that next in addition to her new sticky toffee pudding recipe.
As always, Nigella achieves interesting flavors with her kitchen ways and I know I will be cooking a lot from this book for a long time to come!
