Day 11 is K – A-Z Blog Challenge

K is for Kedgeree.

Kedgeree has its origins in colonial India, and this is as close as I can get to the version my mom made when I was a child growing up in England. Officially, it’s a breakfast dish. I make it for a light supper. If you’ve never had it and enjoy smoked fish you might want to give it a try:

One-half cup unsalted butter
10ozs. Smoked haddock (or other smoked fish such as cod) skinned, boned and flaked
4 cups cooked rice
2 hard cooked eggs finely chopped
One-half teaspoon of salt
One-quarter teaspoon each black pepper and cayenne pepper
2-3 tablespoons light cream
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
Melt butter in a large flying pan over moderate heat.

When the foam subsides, add the fish, rice, eggs, salt, peppers and mix well.

Adjust seasonings to taste.

Stir in the cream, garnish with the parsley and serve immediately.

Kedgeree is a dish that can be created from leftovers—with an adjustment or two if necessary, and it's one I can imagine Michael eating in:


Raindrops And Roses
by Christiane France
(London Calling Series)

The day before Drew McEvoy is to fly home, following a temporary work assignment in London, he trips going down the stairs to a teashop and is saved from injury by the quick thinking of Englishman Michael Dawson. Michael can see Drew is a little shaken up by the incident, so invites him to sit at his table to catch his breath and offers to buy him a cup of tea.

The chemistry is there from the word “go.” Drew doesn’t know if it’s a momentary thing, or if it could turn into something more, but there’s not enough time for him to find out. All he can do is hold onto the moment and stretch it out to the very last drop.

But Michael surprises Drew by inviting him to have a drink at his flat and then go for dinner. Drew knows the most they can have is a few hours, that this time tomorrow they’ll be thousands of miles apart. Should he risk spoiling their brief time together by telling Michael that? Or would it be better to keep his mouth shut? After all, they’re just ships passing in the night, right?
