How many of you, now living in France, remember, perhaps with some nostalgia, participating in those hearty Irish/British (fried and calorie and cholsterol laden) breakfasts??
Both Adrian and myself, and indeed most of our family, never eat a heavy meal in the morning, but from time to time, we have guests who enjoy this type of eating so much, that they bring a large stock of rashers/bacon and local sausages (all vacuum packed) when they come over to France! Our Breton neighbours are always totally intriqued by the waft of flavour floating out from their accommodation, in the early hours of the morning!!!
Our own "petit dejeuner" comprises of (occasionally) cereal, bread/croissant and tea! Whereas our Breton neighbours start their day with strong black coffee, in bowls, and large slices of fresh baguette.
My painting depicts a typically Irish breakfast and can be used in lieu of the real thing, if your hankering for that morning fry, becomes too bad.
