Eggs are always a popular choice for breakfast. I have two sauces here for you to try. I also have an easy Brioche recipe coming soon.!
Father’s Day is soon approaching!

I have some wonderful inspiration for making dad feel extra special!  They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach so let’s take the easy way to making you his favourite child this Father’s Day!


  • 3 tablesppons white wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons dry white wine
  • 2 shallots finely chopped
  • pinch freshly ground white pepper
  • 225g very cold butter diced



  • 175g butter
  • 30ml water
  • 3 egg yolks ONLY
  • pinch salt
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • 15 ml lemon juice





Boil the wine vinegar, shallots, salt and pepper in a pan until there is only about 1 tablespoon of liquid left. Now whisk in the butter (reduce the heat of the stovetop) dice by dice, so that they soften and thicken the sauce rather than MELT, so remove the pan from the heat and maintain the correct temperature along the way. Keep this sauce warm, don’t let it melt as it will become oily! Keep it warm not hot!

Serve with poached fish, steak, vegetables and more!

Once you have mastered this let’s try a Sauce Hollandaise!



This sauce is best served IMMEDIATELY after it is made, you can keep the sauce warm for a short time over a bain marie if necessary.

Melt the butter over a low heat and clarify it by removing the foaming milk solids and only using the ‘yellow oil’ that remains. Let the clarified butter cool down to ‘warm’.

In a small saucepan whisk the water and the eggs yolks, seasoned with the salt and pepper until light and fluffy. Set the pan over a low heat or over the bain marie and whisk until the egg is at ribbon state, or leaves a trail at the base
of the pan. Now turn off the heat and slowly whisk in the butter very slowly making sure it does not curdle. When all the butter has been added stir in the lemon juice and adjust the seasoning.
