Here at eviivo, we’ve always been proud to be part of the incredible B&B industry, and want to see our customers thrive and celebrate their successes wherever we can.
This philosophy led to us establishing the eviivo Tastiest Breakfast award, judged by industry leading figures like Michelin Starred chef Michel Roux Jr, baking doyenne Prue Leith and world-renowned food-writer Dan Lepard.

Now, for the first time, we’re publishing a collection of 40 delicious breakfast recipes from past awards winners, finalists and eviivo customers. Full of unique and delicious breakfasts from the length and breadth of Britain for you to try at home, this book showcases the culinary creativity of our independent hosts and hoteliers.

The recipes cover the traditional alongside the exotic and unusual, including:

A choice of classic fry ups… with a twist

Mushrooms on toast, with garam masala and savoury crunchies

Devilled lambs kidneys and porcini mushrooms on brioche with pea salad

Duck egg, chorizo and guacamole on cornbread

And our personal favourite: Sardines in custard

Oscar Wilde avert your eyes, because this whistle-stop tour of the national culinary landscape proves that the British most definitely are ‘brilliant at breakfast’. Happy cooking, and remember: The best breakfasts are served with a smile!

“Britain’s B&Bs have experienced a renaissance in recent years and I was really impressed by the finalists for the best breakfast award. I’ve always been passionate about good, authentic cooking and it’s great to see such a variety of breakfast dishes from B&B owners alongside traditional bacon and eggs!”

Michel Roux Jr

“Together with Michel Roux Jnr at the eviivo Tastiest Breakfast Award we were delighted by the spirited, comforting and unique breakfasts served in Britain. Now, with this book you can see what excited us and recreate those dishes and techniques at home… Get the kettle on, breakfast is served.”
