From the Kitchen: Prawn & Leek Frittata

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day: something we have all heard ad nauseam. But, how many times have you dashed out of the house haphazardly crunching an apple, or grabbed an energy bar at the coffee shop on your way to the office, or simply skipped breakfast altogether in the scant hope that your morning cuppa will sustain you until lunch? Well, Sous Chef Lungile Ntshulane has a dish that might make you reconsider: her outstanding Prawn and Leek Frittata has become an undoubted favourite on our new a la carte menu. Over to you, Lu!
