I love breakfast. A beautiful day starts with a warm and hearty breakfast with loads of grains, oats, and yoghurt. The best breakfast I had was in Grenoble, a town near Lyon in France. It was a small and old French-styled cafe, furnished with sturdy wooden tables and chairs.
What’s for Breakfast?
On the breakfast table, there were clear glass jars filled with delicious home-made raspberry and apricot jam. Along those bottle of jams, there are jars which were filled with spéculoos ( which looked somewhat like peanut butter).
Spéculoos is a shortcrust biscuit which has a heavy cinnamon taste. Don’t you love the taste and smell of cinnamon? It always reminds me of Christmas and ginger biscuits. Cinnamon goes really well with apples or cheese. It’s a perfect heavenly match!
It was summer when I frequented that particular cafe. There is a lovely warm glow when the sunbeams shone, though. I thought it would be nice if I ordered a breakfast set which consists of crunchy granola with plain
It was simply one of the best French experience I had. Soaking in the warm atmosphere and enjoying breakfast with my two travel mates. Outside the cafe, there stood a girl singing “somewhere over the rainbow” while strumming a ukulele.
A Hearty breakfast
Back in Singapore, I had a difficult time trying to prepare a hearty breakfast for myself. Walnuts, granola, and berries are too expensive. Freshly-baked cereal grain, dark rye or farmer’s bread are slightly more expensive here in Singapore
Nevertheless, I still insist on having a hearty meal in Singapore. In fact, I have decided to create a series of breakfast recipes which uses ingredients that were sold in Singapore.
Here’s my first breakfast formula:
- Waking up to a brand new day
- With a nice warm breakfast prepared for you
- Heat up the apple slices with some cinnamon powder over a small fire
- Top off with some raisins and walnuts
- Served on freshly-baked and slightly toasted dark rye bread
- Breakfast is never complete with a glass of cold plain yoghurt drink.
