Scrambled eggs spiced with turmeric and crumbled chili, sauteed with scallion and garlic.

Spicing up morning eggs not only adds a bit of pizzaz to a winter breakfast, it brings warmth. Turmeric and chili are known for generating heat and ramping up your metabolism. The color alone makes me think of life in exotic lands and put a smile on my face.

Sitting down to a table set with bright blues and purples is a simple, yet brilliant way to begin a Winter’s day. No recipe necessary, just a few basic fresh ingredients and two pinches of spice.

About Peggy Markel

Since 1992, Peggy Markel has traversed the Mediterranean and North Africa, from Elban fishing villages and Moroccan markets to the homes of Tuscan artisans and chefs, furthering her own exploration of culture and cuisine. On these journeys, she saw an opportunity to design and direct her own brand of culinary tours in which enjoyment of the present place and moment plays a pivotal role. "When we speak of Slow Travel, we mean that particular experience of letting yourself merge with your surroundings: the pace, customs, mores and style of where you find yourself. It’s really about our willingness to let the world in, and see ourselves a part of it.” For more information about Peggy's trips and classes, check her web page. For more writing and recipes by Peggy, check her blog.
