Béchamel and Clotted Cream

Béchamel and clotted cream,
eggs Benedict,
poached eggs with bright orange runny yokes,
words slip off the tongue,
some are living the dream.
Clothed in white furs glorious, she reigned.

To complete the image, there are six eggs in a crate, two of which have been cracked. They must have been used in the cooking.
