Caesar salad

Tara is in New York, shopping and partying for a few days with Fern, so i only have to share the kitchen with Marni.  Which means for a few days, i can continue to with some Nigella style cooking.  Tara was complaining that i just created a load of mess in the kitchen for her to clean up, and that it was taking up too much time, so i agreed to a temporary halt.

I went straight out and bought a chicken, for the chicken tagliatelle before and this caesar salad.  The caesar salad was pretty good, although i'm unconvinced as to her recipe for the sauce - seems to be some olive oil, a drop of worcestershire sauce and an essentially raw egg.  I've never made caesar salad, but this sauce wasn't anywhere near the ones i've had in restaurants.  I added chicken to mine (the best bit!) and used traditional croutons instead of Nigella's suggested diced potatoes, enough for one.

- Make some croutons by coating some bread in olive oil, a pinch of salt and putting under the grill until toasted, then dice.
- Chop up a cos lettuce and put in a bowl, coating with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, a pinch of salt, some pepper, 5 drops worcestershire sauce, and a squeeze of lemon.
- Boil an egg for 1 minute exactly then break over the lettuce and toss.
- Add the croutons and lots of grated parmesan.
