A mound of avocado along side Huevos Rancheros? I’ll take two.

Very tempted to go straight to bed ? #symmetryjetlag
The addition of beet root hummus is brilliant.
4. Curried Flatbread
Okay, if I was the neighbor, I would constantly be borrowing a cup of sugar during breakfast time. Especially if it’s topped with mango and lime.
5. Breakfast Toast 3 Ways
Monday: Smørrebrød ?? on walnut rye from @e5bakehouse with a side of Ymerdrys (the recipe is in my book) and a cup of tea. Classic toppings, salmon, eggs with kaviar, crayfish tails and lemon served on ceramic tiles by Peter Shire ?? ——————————- So glad to say that at the weekend with @thegoodegg_ for our Syrian inspired brunch we raised over £4000!

If you are still stuck on buttered toast, here are three reasons to branch out. Well, I guess it’s really six.

You simply can’t go wrong with lox on anything.
7. Strawberry Sprinkle Donuts

I'll be doing some guerrilla book signings today so make sure you check all the books on the shelf if you buy one in a store! ??
Jump into the Simpsons cartoon with this Springfield inspired breakfast.
It’s like having a giant Linzer cookie for breakfast.
9. Steamed Chicken Baozi
This has got to be the largest looking dumpling I have every seen. If I didn’t want a mouth of computer, I would try and bite the picture.
10. Matzah Brei
Friday: Matzah Brei (sweet) with berries and maple syrup. Almost like a very very lazy French Toast but Jewish and most delicious! It is traditionally eaten for breakfast during Passover by some ✡ ————————— We're super excited for next week in New York! ? I want all the bagels and all the lox ? #symmetrybreakfast
The Jewish version of a French Toast looks way better than anything I ever made.

You'll be helping raise money to change the lives of young people in Malawi by sending them to university. Auction prizes include dinner at @nomacph, bread making @tartinebakery and so many more including breakfast made by me! Go have a look and get bidding!

If you're Australian you'll probably see this on the table at a child's birthday or you'll have snaffled one down when you're Mum wasn't looking. #itsnotallavocado #australian #fairybread #?? #Aussie
