      • Ooo yummy! I’ve only had quails eggs once and it was at the John Tovey School of Cookery in the Lake District – I was about 19 and my mum (who was a great cook) had gone on a weekend cookery course at the Miller Howe Hotel with John Tovey.. I joined mum for dinner and they served us Quails eggs as part of the meal and I can still ‘taste’ that creamy flavour all these years later.. I bet that dish is delicious! x

        • Hi Wendy, nice to hear that you had great interest in cooking since very young age. Especially inherited from your mother. Yes quail eggs go great with this. I love going to Bolton fish marked. These we find all these random foods. Especially the hunted birds and seafood. If you haven’t been it’s a great place to visit. For me it’s like museum😍😅. I can spend all long day there😂😂
