WIN tickets to BBC Good Food Show

We will be giving a pair of tickets away each week alongside a recipe from some of the talent at the show. This week we have a Salade Lyonnaise.

A classic Lyonnaise should be made with dandelions but we’ll forgive you for not having any to hand!



Want those free tickets to the Good Food Show? all you have to do to enter is drop us an email telling us why you want them and we will pick the winner at random at the end of the week.

Unless…! You have a go at recreating Michel’s salad using the recipe below and send us photographic proof*. First person to do so wins the pair of tickets outright and we’ll close the competition!! Boom!

Tickets are also available to purchase here: and we have another giveaway next week! So check back for the next recipe!




400g dandelion leaves or frisée salad
180g smoked streaky bacon
4tbs olive oil
White wine vinegar
20 thin slices of small baguette bread
2 cloves garlic
4 free-range eggs
2tbs red wine vinegar
Salt and pepper

Pick, wash and dry the salad leaves. Cut the bacon into strips or baton, place them in a non-stick pan with a drop of olive oil and cook slowly over medium heat. Put a saucepan of water on the boil with a generous splash of white wine vinegar. Bake the baguette slices in a warm oven until dry and crispy, then rub with the cut garlic. Crack the eggs and carefully drop them onto the simmering, vinegared water to poach. The eggs should take about 4mins for the whites to be cooked, yet the yolk still very runny. Pour the golden-brown bacon and fat onto the salad with the bread, vinegar and remaining olive oil. Season lightly with salt but generously with pepper, toss and place the drained, hot eggs on top.
