Symmetry Breakfast Avocado Hollandaise Sauce

Posted on July 20, 2015 by minor goods

The clever Symmetry breakfast boys enjoyed our black plates today with eggs benedict and homemade avocado hollandaise sauce (they replaced half the butter with puree avocado), sounds like a healthy interesting mix! With coffee from The Roasting Shed (another small batch brand for the 'to try' list).

Our stoneware ceramics are made in Portugal by a small family run factory who have been making stoneware since 1980.  Around 80% of the production process is done by hand, so each piece is unique. Our ceramic pieces were selected for their timeless simple forms and versatile colours from the factories archives.
