The Little Paris Kitchen

 I have a new favourite show......

The Little Paris Kitchen!

My wonderful mother in law recommended it and well, Im hooked!

I love Rachel Khoo and her cooking style.

For those of you that havent yet discovered this show, its on SBS on Thursday nights at 8pm.
Or if you miss it, try SBS on demand. Its well worth the watch if you adore the parisian way of life and simple yet delicious food.

I sit through each episode and madly make notes on each dish. Then I call my mother in law and we drool over each recipe and talk about making them!

This is my attempt at making Oeufs en Cocotte or otherwise quite simply...Eggs in pots!

First of all, the ingredients.....
fresh farm eggs (courtesy of our friends Nicola & Peter!), cream fraiche, nutmeg, 
salt, pepper & some parsley.Rachel used dill but I didn't have any.  
You will also need some ramikins or tea cups. 
I used my vintage Villaroy & Boch egg poachers-how cute are they????

Simply, add a heaped teaspoon of cream fraiche into each ramekin. 
Sprinkle some nutmeg, salt and pepper over. 
Then crack an egg and add another dallop of cream fraiche and sprinkle of nutmeg, salt and pepper. Then some chopped parsley (or dill) on top.Voila!!!!
Place ramikins into a baking dish and add enough warm water to come half way up sides. 
Bake in oven at 180deg cel for about 20 minutes. 
Keep an eye on them so the yolk doesn't cook through though! 
Its all about the gooey yolk!
And the final result!
Served traditionally with leftover crunchy baguettes, however, 
the cupboard was bare so I used some english muffins instead.
How delicious and so incredibly simple. Perfecto for a chilly winters morning!

Bon Apetite x
