My egg universe has recently expanded. I have certainly used eggs as a vessel to eat a lot of things. Omelettes, in particular have been a way to eat both classic and more unusual flavours. However, when I eat my eggs scrambled, poached, fried, or boiled I tend to season them with some salt and pepper at the most. I never actually considered flavouring the eggs themselves with anything else, until I came across My Name is Yeh’s tamago recipe.
I’ve mentioned a number of times how obsessed I am with Masterchef Australia. I actually applied to Masterchef Canada (which is quite different) but didn’t get past the interview round. Oh well. The point is, I realized that if I were to ever aspire to any sort of Masterchef dream I would have to learn the basics, sans recipe. I noticed that some people go on the show (not the Australian version) and don’t know a basic pasta or pie dough or cake recipe. Isn’t it obvious that something of that sort is going to come up?
