Happiness Is

In anticipation of my upcoming interview with Clotilde Dusoulier, the author of Chocolate & Zucchini, I reacquainted myself with the delicacy known as the soft-boiled egg.

Clotilde's recipe calls for coating the toast fingers in an artichoke dip, which sounds tasty, but at 9:00 on a Saturday morning I was sans-artichoke and too hungry for the torture associated with a trip to the Associated Supermarket. So egg and toast it was, and it was glorious.--S
