How do you like your eggs?

The egg: versatile, nutritious and flavoursome, all wrapped up in a beautiful package. They’re emblematic of Eastertime, but equally evocative of home comfort – wherever home may be. We asked cooks and food writers from different countries to share a favourite egg recipe. If you’re looking for a brunch dish this holiday weekend, the tricky part will be choosing one from this dazzling half-dozen

RECIPES FROM AROUND THE WORLD

Ukrainians don’t do breakfast by halves. When we were shooting at my aunt’s house for my book Mamushka, my photographer Kris and I were working non-stop for four days. We felt that we were going to faint from exhaustion, so my aunt whipped up this Ukrainian village breakfast. We came straight back to life! I distinctly remember she said she used a chicken breast from a chicken she’d killed that morning. God I miss Ukraine...

Anything you fancy or that’s in season can go with these eggs, but the ingredient that makes this dish quintessentially Ukrainian is good quality lardo (pork fat). I know a lot of people are into clean eating these days, but we Ukrainians love our lardo. It envelops everything with the most wonderful porky flavour – a flavour we can’t live without.
