Food buy of the week: get cheffy

Throw a few quail's eggs into a salad or soup and you add a touch of class and flavour. Being smaller than hen's eggs they can be hard boiled in two and a half minutes and soft boiled in just one and a half. Perfect for show-off dinner party food and canapes too, we love these ones which have a slightly lighter texture than hen's eggs. Posh Birds say the 'Speckled Princesses' who lay them have a fine, 'sociable' life. We're happy for them. And happy to take their eggs.

Posh Birds Quail Eggs, £2.39 for a box Of 12, from selected Tesco stores and online at here.
