Farm egg baked in celery cream
Farm egg baked in celery cream
"You know... the farm egg with celery cream at Miller Union is pretty tight, I must say. It's just perfect to sop up with crusty bread (next to the 'Angry Mussels' juice at JCT. Kitchen, of course!). This is basically eggs en cocotte—a French breakfast of soft-baked eggs and cheese in a ramekin—but the addition of celery is subtle and mixes perfectly with the runny yolk and crusty 'soldiers.'"
