My Favourite Meal

BREAKFAST IS my favourite meal of the day, although too often I skid past it in a time-starved flurry. Anyway I have just had a fine fill at Roast, Borough Market, with my ex-girlfriend. We plucked for the 'Full Borough', a gigantic collage of poached egg, Ayrshire smoked streaky bacon, cumberland sausages, fried bread, black pudding, grilled tomatoes, field mushrooms(...) topped and tailed with flutes of particularly pomaceous Mumm NV Champagne, a better use for this bubbly than Formula One, water-gun.
I am currently reading Vogue food critic, Jeffrey Steingarten's 'The Man Who Ate Everything'. I recommend it, particularly for the engaging wit, personal approach and gentle release of information.
