All about this blog

I should start by introducing myself.

I'm The Muesli Lover.

I'm the one who picked the raisins out of my Alpen when everyone else was eating Pop Tarts, the one who took a Tupperware of homemade granola to university when everyone else took Che Guevara posters, the one who spends £5 on a pint-sized bag of granola at farmers' markets...

I've always loved breakfast - and not just the oaty stuff. I could eat it three times a day... a steaming bowl of porridge with fresh figs and manuka honey, a heap of canary yellow duck egg scrambled egg atop a wedge of toasted sourdough, a luscious smoothie of oats, soya milk, banana and frozen raspberries with a touch of cinnamon. Give me breakfast any time of the day.

It's a passion that I want to share with you.

This blog will be jam-packed with my favourite breakfast recipes, new recipes tested, the best places to eat breakfast, nutritional breakfast factoids to weed out the nasties of the cereal world, pictures of wonderful and weird breakfasts from around the world, the best breakfast videos, news about the best meal of the day, and a whole heap of porridge paraphernalia to keep you simmering with delight and salivating for more.
