Breakfast in Bed

A twist on the classic treat consists of sweet, roasted tomatoes, crunchy croutons and a peppering of rocket accompanying smoked salmon and poached eggs.

Breakfast in bed


  • 240g of smoked salmon
  • 200g of cherry tomatoes on the vine
  • 2 English muffins, cut into rough 1cm cubes
  • 1 tbsp of white wine vinegar
  • 4 eggs
  • 50g of rocket, washed
  • 80ml of rapeseed oil
  • 1 pinch of black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4
  2. Place the tomatoes and the diced muffins on a shallow baking tray. Pour over 60ml of rapeseed oil and add a pinch of black pepper
  3. Place the tray into the oven for 12–15 minutes, or until the tomatoes are just tender and the muffin cubes are a light golden brown colour. Remove from the oven and set aside
  4. To cook the eggs, bring a large pan of water to a rolling boil and add the white wine vinegar
  5. Crack the eggs into separate ramekins or cups, ensuring there are no pieces of shell
  6. Gently tip each egg into the water. The eggs should drop to the bottom of the saucepan and then begin to float back to the surface
  7. Poach the eggs for 3–4 minutes and then remove from the water with a slotted spoon. Place the eggs on a plate with a sheet of kitchen paper to soak up excess water
  8. Serve the eggs on a bed of smoked salmon, muffin croutons, roasted tomatoes and wild rocket. Drizzle the remaining rapeseed oil over each plate and serve

Millionaire’s marbled chocolate tart

This inspired take on the sweet treat millionaire shortbread is truly indulgent. The layers consist of shortcrust pastry, salted caramel and ripples of white and dark chocolate for the extra ooze of flavour.




  • 375g of shortcrust pastry

Salted caramel filling

  • 200g of caramel
  • 1 tsp sea salt flakes

Chocolate topping

  • 200g of dark chocolate
  • 100g of caster sugar
  • 100g of unsalted butter, cubed, plus extra for greasing
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks

To decorate

  • 100g of white chocolate
  • vanilla ice cream, to serve


  1. Take the shortcrust pastry out of the fridge 45 minutes before using to allow it to come to room temperature
  2. Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6. Lightly grease a 23cm square (or rectangular) tart tin with a removable base
  3. Roll out the pastry to the thickness of a pound coin, making sure it is wide enough to line the tin completely with plenty of pastry to overhang the sides. Carefully lift the rolled pastry over the tin and gently press into the base and up the sides
  4. Use a fork to prick the base a few times, then line the pastry with baking paper and weigh down with baking beans
  5. Bake blind for 15 minutes, then remove the beans and paper and return the tin to the oven for another 5 minutes until the pastry is fully cooked through – it should be crisp and a golden biscuit colour
  6. Leave to cool slightly, then trim off the excess pastry from the sides with a sharp knife to leave a smooth, neat edge
  7. Reduce the oven temperature to 180°C/gas mark 4
  8. Smooth the caramel over the base of the pastry – if too thick to use, whisk the caramel briefly in a bowl to make it easier to spread. Sprinkle the sea salt flakes over the top and set aside while making the chocolate topping
  9. Allow both to melt down gently, stirring the dark chocolate and butter together so that they are fully incorporated. When both are melted, turn off the heat but leave the bowls sat over the water to stay warm
  10. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the whole eggs, yolks and caster sugar with an electric whisk for 5 minutes. When the mixture has thickened and is pale in colour, pour in the dark chocolate and fold through to create an even mixture
  11. Pour this into the tart tin to completely cover the caramel. Spoon lines of the melted white chocolate over the dark chocolate mixture and drag a cocktail stick through the white chocolate to create swirls
  12. Bake the tart for 20 minutes until just set on top – the centre should still have a slight wobble when shaken
  13. Leave to cool for an hour so that it is slightly gooey when cut. Slice into portions to serve, preferably with a handsome dollop of vanilla ice cream
