Fodder in Harrogate the Local Food Shop run by The Yorkshire Agricultural Society is a shining example of how a local food store should be, with a fantastic selection of Yorkshire’s finest foods and a great Café to boot. I was lucky enough to be invited along to enjoy Breakfast with our host Rosemary Shrager who delighted us with her tales and anecdotes about The Great Yorkshire Breakfast, the subject of her new book, (this sounds a bit like the One Ronnie Parkinson show sketch!)
Rosemary demonstrated the perfect scrambled egg (slowly – slowly), poached quail eggs (cut the top off), Hollandaise sauce, potato scones (very easy, I promise not to buy them ready made again) and one of her childhood favourites kedgeree, whilst all the time keeping us amused with her stories, experiences & still having time to berate Fodders Head Chef from time to time.
Breakfast followed the demo and included eggs benedict, kedgeree and stewed fruit with ice cream.
Rosemary’s book is available now and includes sections on the Full English, Healthy Breakfasts, Brunch, Munchies, Special Occasion Breakfasts, Indulgence, Breads, Jams & Preserves and Drinks.
