Bacon & Eggs | The Cookbook (FREE SHIPPING)
I really look forward to going out for breakfast and I can’t think of anything more enticing to the palate than a hearty bacon and eggs breakfast. In my opinion, there’s no meal as good as a plate of crispy bacon, perfectly poached eggs, hot toast with real butter with a side of garlic mushrooms and sautéed spinach – absolute heaven!
Bacon and Eggs to many people around the world is what pasta is to Italians, bagels to the New Yorkers, haggis to the Scottish and sashimi to the Japanese. Almost like a culture in itself.
This book contains recipes using both eggs and pork, and other porcine bi-products, such as ham, prosciutto, sausages, and of course the star attraction –bacon. Many recipes are traditional, although I have prepared them in my own special way, with little tweaks and personal touches, which I believe are creatively unique and deliciously irresistible. There are no rules to adhere to regarding the lists of ingredients I have provided– you can create your own versions of my adaptations and most recipes provide various alternatives for non-meat eaters.
Both individually and combined, bacon and eggs are incredibly versatile. In this book, I will show you how to create fabulous recipes that can be eaten any time of the day.
Don’t be fooled by the title – this book is not just about breakfast. There are hundreds of possible combinations to create fabulous meals using any of the featured ingredients. Here are just a few.
I hope you enjoy this book as much as I have cooking, tasting and selecting the recipes for you.
About the author
Monique is an author, entrepreneur, public speaker and voice over artist.
Monique has worked most of her life in hospitality, promotions and customer service, and later providing professional staff to many corporations for product launches, exhibitions, and trade events. When she opened her own promotional agency, Australia in Style, she soon became one of the most in demand promotional agents in Australia.
After years of success, the economy took a turn and the business failed. Determined to restore her success, and with the help of her sister, Monique took over another promotional modeling agency called Vanity the Agency.
With this new business, she began a 15-year-long effort to change people’s negative perceptions of promotional models. While supplying models for the motor show niche, she found herself in the position of fulfilling requests for a very narrow type of model. Through the power of persuasion, Monique was able to broaden the type of models who worked these events, eliminating height restrictions and including people of all ethnicities, males as well as females and plus size models. She was also responsible for many teams being dressed in comfortable, stylish outfits.
Inspiration for the Bacon & Eggs cookbook came from touring with staff to interstate events. Monique ensured her A-team had a hearty breakfast before taking on 12 hour days for weeks at a time. Bacon and eggs was the preferred meal, although Monique wanted to make the meals a little fancier than the standard presentation. When she looked for a Bacon & Eggs cookbook to give her inspiration, there wasn’t anything in the market. This void led to 10 years of recipe writing for the book.
Having travelled abroad to France, Hong Kong, Italy, Israel, England and Greece, with an inquisitive palate, has enabled Monique to confidently dabble in other international cuisines.
Born and raised in Sydney, enthusiasm for cooking came at an early age. In the kitchens of doting Eastern European grandmothers, Monique graduated from curious spectator, potato peeler and cake mixer, to preparing three course meals for the family, all under loving watchful eyes.
Having co-managed a busy Darlinghurst café, as well as working in a family owned café in Double Bay, Monique knows her way around a kitchen.
Monique is the author of ‘Bacon & Eggs’ and is currently residing between Hervey Bay and Sydney. She is working on a number of themed and exciting new cookbooks.
