Some Like It Savory
Eggs come in so many shapes and forms, just like mothers. We love the quivering custard of quiche and the runny yolk of the star ingredient on a Benedict so elegant that it looks as though it belongs in a four-star restaurant. Beginners appreciate the ease this versatile product brings to the approachable frittata. Chef John's a master at whipping up egg dishes that can easily be the centerpiece at any special occasion.
