People often tell me my music taste is eclectic and I agree because I really do like a bit of everything! I love the shuffle setting on my ipod, you take it for granted but things have moved on a bit since my 1980's Walkman days when the best thing ever was the auto-rewind, and it is great to be surprised with a track from your collection you haven't heard for ages.

Kedgeree is traditionally a breakfast dish made with rice, eggs and smoked haddock. We substitute the rice for bulgur wheat which is more nutritionally fence than rice and lower in carbs. You can also use quinoa or a 50/50 mix of bulgur wheat and quinoa. As haddock is off the sustainable fish list we are currently using smokes cod instead - but any smoked white fish will do the job.
