The Call of the Wild is a novel by American writer Jack London. The plot concerns a previously domesticated and even somewhat pampered dog named Buck, whose primordial instincts return after a series of events...... Its possible most of you have read this book, interesting story, a classic that was followed up later by White Fang in which a wild wolf becomes civilized...I recommend them if you have not read them.
I like to eat things from nature as often as I can, whether its some hand picked chestnuts or mushrooms that I have foraged or even some game meat, eating the things that nature provides gives me a feeling of wholeness. I thought that I should show you what not an average, proper Irish breakfast looks like. It has a lot of the same things as a 'proper' Irish breakfast except for my little spins here and there.
I start off with some Peruvian purple potatoes.
A few field mushrooms
Eggs-organic, free range, never yelled at, tricked or beguiled, in fact these eggs are so innocent they are probably virgins, a claim not easily made by most!
Slab bacon, New Mexico red chile and on the plate it goes. The first picture above has the chile under the eggs but I like to add a little more on top, I am spicy like that!
Be careful when you cry wolf!
