Breakfasts at the Torridon are really special. How do you like your eggs; over-easy, sunny-side up, fried or boiled? We have a special egg-like treat in the kitchen garden too; the smiling yellow centres of the (inedible) poached egg plant, limnanthes douglasii. This plant is a native of North America and a favourite of bees. It is a good ground-cover plant and self-seeds easily so it is likely to continue to appear over successive years. Delicious though it looks, we grow plenty of more edible flowers and herbs in the kitchen garden to create a healthy, wholesome omelette!
