In Celebration of Eggs

Calais Quiche

In Celebration of Eggs

Picture an old bathtub filled with hard boiled eggs. My assignment at my sister’s wedding some 30 years ago was to make 10 dozen deviled eggs as well as an enormous batch of pâté.   The very fresh eggs came from several of her neighbors’ chickens.  If you’ve ever hard boiled and peeled a freshly laid egg, you know that the shell has the troublesome habit of holding on to a some of the white just below it.  Multiply by 120 and you can get an idea of how I was feeling that afternoon.

Despite my PTDED (post traumatic deviled egg disorder) I’ve re-kindled my love affair with the egg.
