Celebrity Chef Pete Evans Defends 'Ridiculous' Breakfast He Served His Daughters
I don't know what you were served for breakfast as a kid, but I bet you fifty quid it didn't involve caviar.
But for the daughters of Australian celebrity chef, Pete Evans, this sort of thing is served up as standard.
The Sydney-based chef shared a picture of the 'surf and turf breakfast' before explaining in the caption just what exactly we're all looking at - namely boiled organic eggs topped with caviar, sauerkraut, grass-fed wagyu hotdogs with chilli sauce, a little fruit, coconut yoghurt and chicken broth.
View this post on InstagramSurf and turf breakfast for the girls. Boiled organic eggs topped with @yarvalleycaviar, kraut and the new @cleaversorganicmeat grass fed wagyu hotdog with chilli sauce. They also get a little fruit and coconut yoghurt and chicken broth most days before heading off for the day. Always some form of animal fat and Protein in the form of land or water based animals including eggs. We cover all this in our book bubba yum yum for toddlers and children :heart::v:

Whether you think this looks divine or pretentious is a matter of taste, but surely all of us are at least curious to try it. Indeed, judging by the response to the post, the majority of people would really, really like to try it and are pretty jealous of the lives led by the chef's daughters.
However, after the brekkie was branded 'ridiculous' on one news site, Evans leapt to its defence in a subsequent post.
He said: "Well there you go. Some may call this ridiculous... I like to call it delicious and of course at the end of the day (or actually start of the day) it is well sourced animal protein and fat from land or sea or fresh water animals and some vegetables and fruit in any combination that suits your taste buds, availability, budget and time.
"The formula is always the same... remove the inflammatory food and celebrate the food that keeps us healthy."
He added that their breakfast is always comprised of 'some form of animal fat and protein in the form of land or water based animals including eggs'.
So what you waiting for? Burn your Corn Flakes; head out to the caviar shop for your breakfast supplies and prepare to rapidly go bankrupt.
