Eggs are back in the hater aisle. Once again some study by somebody says they’re bad for you, way more dangerous to you than driving, drugs, drinking, dragons, or druids. I don’t pay attention to these things. It always seems like a study that says something about [insert anything here] is made up. Probably because it’s made up.
Never fear, Jacques is here to demolish such nonsense with facts, wit, and plain happiness. Definitely worth the read.
“Fortunately, for the sane cook, butter and eggs will never be passe, even if some moderation proves to be wise. The egg is just too perfect.”
I always try and have eggs around. I needed a short meal before my hike today. So all I did is scramble some eggs with harissa. Nothing else, just eggs and harissa in some butter. Then I toasted some wheat bread and melted some French morbier cheese on it. Simple, easy, win.
“Until then, if you don’t like my defense of eggs, go ahead: Throw some my way.”
Oh don’t worry, Jacques, no problems over here. I’m sure I’ve written it too many times on the blog by now, but man do I ever love Pepin.
