What is the best way to compliment your lazy Sunday’s and make them even more perfect? A hot cup of frothed coffee of course! Devondale Barista’s Own is made to deliver a consistent smooth creamy froth to your favourite style of coffee at home.
When faced with a challenge of re-creating a recipe by a celebrity chef, the natural tendency is to cringe and go "ooh, that sounds too complicated". Surprisingly, not all recipes by these "celebrity chefs" are impossible to re-create! As a matter of fact, chefs like Jamie Oliver and Curtis Stone are all about making their food easy for everyday people like you and me to make at home, and of course they are delicious.
This particular recipe from Curtis Stone (he is my favorite celebrity chef, also a hunk, read all about him here) is very simple and only requires a handful of ingredients that are easy to source. Nothing too complicated or overly fancy. I thought it would be perfect for me to try making this breakfast dish for hubby on Father's Day this morning.
I stayed fairly true to the recipe, except I added some hot salami and used grated cheese instead of the block of cheddar. I also completely used only the oven to heat up the tortillas and cook everything else as if I was making a mini pizza. The result: AWESOME! It was a bit of a "manly" dish, with the saltiness of the ham and heat from the salami. The fried egg was perfect to add the "gooey" factor to the dish. It was also easier to eat the whole thing by hand, by folding the tortilla and just creating a gooey but delicious mess!
To try and recreate this recipe yourself, please check out the recipe and video from Curtis Stone himself HERE.
Now that was MY perfect breakfast accompaniment to a cup of coffee made with Devondale Barista's Own Frothing Milk :)

Question: “How would Barista’s Own Frothing Milk help get your lazy Sunday off to a perfect start?”
Lazy Sundays are especially sweet,
When started off with a caffiene treat.
Perfect milk for perfect frothy,
Barista's Own Frothing Milk sounds like the best for coffee.
I wish I had some in my cupboard today for drinking,
Instead of the 4 day old stuff in my fridge stinking.
Question: “Describe your perfect coffee art designed on your Barista's Own Frothing Milk canvas”
The most perfect coffee art I could imagine would be amazing in its simplicity. My other half had a barista make me a coffee and he asked the barista to put 15 on it. The 15 was located inside a heart with a Cupid arrow through it. The 15 symbolised the date of our anniversary and the day each month that we stop to remember how much we mean to each other. I will never forget the symbolic nature of such a simple feature.
Question: “What is your favorite breakfast dish accompanying coffee made with Devondale Barista's Own Frothing Milk?”
Way too early, roll out of bed,Poached egg, cheese, pesto, toasted multigrain bread.It’s MY OWN GOURMET MCMUFFIN with a rich, strong coffee delight…Using Devondale Barista's Own Frothing just right!!!
Question: “What was your first memory when it comes to drinking coffee? Describe the experience.”
I would never ever touch coffee, even at the age of 25 I would still only have milo and worse case scenario if you did not have milo it would have to be cocoa...When my children started school and I began to make friends with other mums my hubby said "Natalie, it's time you try a coffee", that was such a huge step for me but from that moment, WOW my Love affair with coffee began. Now every morning I continue this affair and my real treat is every Thursday I will buy myself a LATTEE and walk around shopping, just me and my secret cup.
CONGRATULATIONS to all winners and a BIG THANK YOU to all who entered the competition! Fingers crossed let's see if someone who entered from my blog gets to win the major prize aka the Coffee Machine. Stay tuned!!
