The book is simple and straightforward, covering the classics as well as fun variations like English Custard with Rhubarb or Fresh Ginger Muffins. Starting with yeast breads and ending with a list of menus, Ms. Cunningham covers eggs, cereals, all things toast, quick breads, fruit, potatoes, sweets, hearty meat and fish dishes, and breakfast beverages. There is something innately trustworthy and satisfying about The Breakfast Cookbook. Much like breakfast itself!
First published in 1987, The Breakfast Cookbook is still in print, although perhaps a bit hard to find. But if you do, I highly recommend you take it off the shelf for a peek and see for yourself how fresh and relevant this book still is. And I would be quite surprised indeed if you didn't find yourself purchasing a copy to bring home. Your breakfast guests will be forever grateful!
Gourmet did a nice write up of The Breakfast Cookbook on their website last year.
