Egg Tuesday – The incredible edible egg.

June 29, 2010

After spending time on a farm in Washington this weekend I couldn’t help but to start thinking more about the “farm to table” movement. There I was eating the most flavorful, clean tasting wonderful cheese that was less than 48 hours old. I was eating it while staring out the window at a lush pasture of sheep and goats that produced the milk that made the cheese.

Although the “farm to table” phrase may be starting to sound cliché it really does represent a change in the way we think about our food. What could make more sense than having food that is natural, healthful and delivered with the minimal amount of manipulation. Because I am a huge fan of the egg I couldn’t help but to think about the fact that the egg could not be more symbolic of this movement. An oval gift, the perfect food; and most importantly as a chef so incredibly tasty!!

I had a simple fried egg this morning with a slice of whole wheat toast. The egg white was perfectly tender and mildly seasoned with salt to bring out the best of its natural flavor. The yolk stood tall and was perfectly set. The toast was crispy on the outside but just chewy and porous enough on the inside to act as the perfect culinary sponge to mop up every bit of that scrumptious, naturally delicious egg yolk.

I am so happy to see the flood of research hitting showing that the egg’s cholesterol does not appear to have any substantial effect on the cholesterol level in the blood. Check out the articles below. My farm to table poster child can stand more proud than ever and so can I working with America’s Egg Farmers. Enjoy your eggs, enjoy your day.

Feed the hungry by making a pledge (no cost) to eat good. Do good everyday.  America’s egg farmers are donating up to one million eggs to feed the hungry.
