Well, it has yet again been a long time coming...but this time, i am determined! Also, the fact that i've somewhat taken over my work's blogger has made me feel like a neglectful mother for my own

I have got a lot lined up that i want to go over from the past two years (although it will probably be quite brief seeing as i'll be stirring my substandard memory) and there's a lot of foodie/generally exciting stuff going with how life is moving now, so updates should be fairly easy. For now, i'll just leave it with a rather delicious dinner i recently had...simple, quick and fantastic!

Poached duck egg, purple sprouting brocolli, parmesan and prosciutto

Duck Eggs
Purple Sprouting Brocolli
Prosciutto Di Parma
Olive Oil
Balsamic Vinegar
Salt and Pepper to finish

Firstly, quantities for this recipe really are dependent on how hungry you're feeling! As a general rule of thumb per person, one duck egg, five or six sprouts of broccoli and a couple of slices of parma ham should suffice.

Cooking of the poached egg and the PSB will be pretty much at the same time, so get your plates and cutlery out ready.

Bring a pan of water to the boil and then steam the broccoli until just tender. Poach the duck egg for 3-4 minutes or until cooked to your liking. Tear the prosciutto and shave the parmesan over the PSB before placing the poached duck egg on top. Finish with a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar and a twist of black pepper and salt. Enjoy!
