The Egg – The Genus of Life
To celebrate the arrival of summer and rebirth, some religions hunt for eggs. Solstice is celebrated by balancing eggs in their ends. So beautiful a creation and marvel of construction we feel almost sorry to crack its shell, yet the real beauty lies inside the egg.
The egg’s concentration of nutrients is nothing short of perfection, giving the world a wondrous supply of nutrients, protein and vitamins. The global population consumes approximately 2 Billion eggs each day, which are nearly 700 Billion eggs per annum. The accepted symbol of life nourishes the earth’s population with a single crack of the shell.
To the chef that cherishes this beautiful food he finds it more versatile than most other food types, used in recipes from every corner. At times it creates the simplest of dishes and then the most complicated, either way to the chef that uses this beauty he is satisfied, that a simple creation serves him in wondrous ways.
