Rick Bayless - recipe in The Observer

Photo Credit: Jasmined

The Observer is not the first place I'd look for a Rick Bayless recipe, but Sunday's copy featured his all-time favourite breakfast recipe, Huevos Motulenos, a mountain of cripsy tostadas, topped with beans, plaintain, ham, peas and eggs. Phew!

To follow the recipe, click on this link. But be warned, this is not a quick breakfast dish as it will take you a some time in the kitchen...and certainly not to be undertaken with a Saturday night hangover...unless someone else is cooking it!

Tortilla set for Wimbledon opening....

Burritos are coming to SW19! Tortilla are opening their 8th restaurant on Wimbledon's Broadway next month. This will be their first premises to open following a £3.5 million investment from the private equity firm, Quilvest, with plans to expand the brand with another 25 sites across the UK over the next few years. Pretty impressive for a company that only started up five years' ago.
