About this item

When it comes to the most important meal of the day, this is the book to end all books--a delectable selection of recipes, advice, illustrations, and miscellany.

The recipes in this robust volume begin with the iconic full English--which can mean anything as long as there are eggs, bacon, sausages, mushrooms, tomatoes, black pudding, bread, potatoes, and beans involved--before moving confidently on to more exotic fare such as kedgeree, omelet Arnold Bennett, waffles, American muffins, porridge, roast peaches, chana masala from India, borek from the Balkans, and pão de queijo from South America. There are also useful tips like the top songs to boil an egg to, and how to store mushrooms.

Interspersing the practicalities of putting together a good breakfast are essays and miscellanies from a crack team of eggsperts--among them H. P. Seuss, Blake Pudding, Poppy Tartt, and Malcolm Eggs--who offer their musings on such varied topics as forgotten breakfast cereals of the 1980s, famous last breakfasts, and Freud's famous Breakfast Dream.

Whether you are a cereal purist, a dedicated fan of eggs and bacon, or a breakfast aficionado with a world view,The Breakfast Bible is the most important book of the day.

The creator of "The London Review of Breakfasts" blog presents a treasury of recipes, advice and miscellany celebrating the "most important meal of the day" as based on the traditional fares of England, the United States, India and South America, sharing lighthearted essays and instructions for topics ranging from storing mushrooms to singing fun songs while boiling eggs.
