Travels with a Gourmet

a food lover's travels, memorable meals, culinary trials and gastronomic experiences

It’s the middle of my son’s Easter holidays and he wanted to make me brunch today. He had seen an episode of Jamie Oliver’s Jamie at Home where an easy frittata was made over a wood fire. Amazingly, he wrote the recipe down – using drawings for ingredients instead of words – and was able to recreate the frittata from memory just using his basic recipe drawing and a little bit of help from me for the stove-related stuff. It was a perfect brunch meal served with a tomato and red onion salad.
