There are few more versatile things to have up your sleeve. A couple of softly-scrambled eggs, a slice of soft toast, and breakfast the next day is the savoury joy of a 'Scotch Woodcock'. Stir through a spoonful of crème fraîche, and dip raw vegetables for a pleasing aperitif. Let down a spoonful with a little vinegar and oil, and use it to dress a beautiful green salad. Or simply smear onto good toast, and eat the fingers as you wait for your pie to cook, sipping on a glass of wine.
