Let's celebrate the first day of spring with a banquet of a breakfast. I visited Tel Aviv a few years ago and was blown away by the sumptuous breakfasts. Dish after dish appeared full of olives, honey, cheese it was epic. You will need to buy bread to go with the food and you will need an egg for the shakshuka. You can eat it straight away on the Saturday or save it for a lazy Sunday grazing. Find a sunshine corner of the house, a pot of fresh coffee, a very big bloody mary and relax.
Shakshuka is the main breakfast dish and then you will get at least 8 of the other dishes. If there is anything in particular that you want let me know when you book and I will make sure it's in the bag. If you want more than 8 that's brilliant, let me know how many extra you want and I will increase your order, the tubs are £1.50 each and you can pay the extra when you pick it up. If you are ordering more than one I will make sure that you get as many different pots as possible. I highly recommend buying some pitta bread and popping it in the toaster to warm it but any selection of fresh bread, croissants or crackers will go well with the breakfast. Tea, coffee, fresh orange juice, I am having a very big jug of bloody mary with mine. There's lots of options so if you want vegan, diary free etc let me know when you book.
Shakshuka is a delicious combination of eggs poached in a spicy tomato sauce, onions, tomatoes, and spices are cooked until they form a delicious . I've done the hard work for you all you need to do is make a well in the sauce, crack an egg and pop it in the oven for about 6 minutes.
Hummus - (for breakfast .... I know....)
Roasted peppers with cumin, garlic and pomegranate molasses
Full fat yogurt with home made granola
Marinated feta cheese with rosemary, garlic and lemon
Shepherds salad of cucumber, tomatoes and herbs
Whipped feta with date molases
Bourekas a small mouthful of filled pastry
Avocado, pea and mint dip
Beetroot, orange and fennel dip

Aubergine (you know I have a secret ambition to get people to eat more aubergine)
Slow roasted sunshine tomatoes

The biggest expense for this event sadly is packaging so if you can help me recycle the tubs and bring them back I will swap you for cake.
