Friday Food Foto – Cuvee Napa Oh! Benedict

Napa Terrace Inn Cuvee Breakfast

Sorry this is a little on the fuzzy side!

I love eggs. I even have a Pinterest board dedicated to them.  I can eat them any meal, any way.  So having eggs benedict is nothing new, but I had a very original version of it while staying at the Napa River Terrace Inn during my #Trafalgar2012 trip.

I had breakfast at their restaurant, Cuvee, and I ordered their Oh Benedict! made up of “two gently poached eggs, a top grilled baguette with parma ham, overnight tomato, cracked green olives, hollandaise, basil, and pecorino cheese.”

It was an unusual pairing, especially the green olives, and I loved it!

Now, onto More Tasty Tidbits:

  1. Eggs are the best! I had them for breakfast and lunch yesterday haha!!!

  2. Thanks for the shoutout Andi :) And oh my – I LOVE the look of those eggs. Want.

  3. I love Eggs Benedict, and I love your egg board. The links were really great this time. Thank you. I want to make the spaetzel with all those herbs and the pear/ham sandwich. I also liked the idea of Texas cuisine with a French twist.

  4. @Jen, I had a pear and cheese and ham sandwich a few weeks ago and it was so yummy. I used to eat spaetzel all the time when I lived in France, they serve it all the time in Switzerland and the mountains part of France and I love it.

  5. That breakfast was pretty impressively delicious. And the people who worked there so nice!

  6. @Abby, totally agree!

    This looks soooo delicious!! It certainly doesn’t look like your Granny’s Eggs Benedict does it??
    Thanks for sharing, going to try something similar later this week and I’ll let ya know how it turns out

  8. Yum…eggs! Unfortunately, I just found out that I’m allergic to them…ack!

    I’m a huge egg fan, too, but I am soooo disappointed with the eggs we get in North America – no taste, no color, even if you buy so-called “free-range organic.” My husband and I always look forward to the 3 months (twice a year – yes we are lucky!) we spend in rural Crete where we get our eggs from a friend down the street who has chickens, fresh from the nest. Nothing like them! The chickens are pastured only, eat only bugs and vegetable material (and goat poop!) and the eggs are always warm from the nest – not possibly one month old like you get in the supermarket. Heaven! And you eat them simply fried in local olive oil,

  10. @MD, oh I could not agree more, I miss eggs in France!
