A Tribute to the Egg Yolk: “The Egg Yolk Series” – featuring 12 eggs and where to eat them!
I wanted to do a special Easter post and I was debating between Easter chocolates and goodies or an Easter recipe. Last year I reluctantly decided to “eat the Easter bunny” with friends at Bistrot Bistro – see here. Well that’s what they like to call it, but I just rather say I ate rabbit… I feel less guilty.
This photo (from Blog Chef) won’t make me feel less guilty, especially after the photo of the cute baby chicks, but…
Since it’s also the year of the rabbit I decided to lay off the rabbit (bad karma), and just celebrate the egg! So here’s my tribute to the runny egg yolk!
Give it a bit more time and I predict the use of eggs becoming quite the trend. It almost already is, as chefs are coming up with innovative ways to feature them in more than just breakfast and brunch. I must state that almost any Asian culture embraced this secret long before it ever got (or gets) popular.
I assumed in my C Restaurant brunch post that 70% of Follow Me Foodie readers appreciate the runny egg yolk, so I will assume 70% of you will be drooling at your screens after what I call “The Egg Yolk Series”. I personally think it’s one of the most naturally beautiful things to look at and delicious things to eat.
If the thought of runny egg yolks makes you want to gag, I suggest maybe not continuing. But, if you can get through the gorgeous golden flows of luscious silky egg yolks, then there are some recommendations for other amazing egg dishes that I love (that are non-runny).
PS: Please don’t count my cholesterol levels, I already have a doctor who reminds me… but thank you! Without further ado, and listed in no particular order, let’s hop to it…

Love, love, love runny egg yolks. Even buy duck eggs so they’ll be more unctuous!
This is fabulous.

hey any brunch suggestions for 7 people Main/Commercial area that take reservations???
@Ruth – hmmmm that take reservations… those places in those areas are usually so small that I doubt it. Havana Restaurant & Gallery might take reservations, but I heard it was okay to good. The Whip and Habit might take resos! Those are bigger brunch places so I’m more confident they would!
