The Pursuit of Egg-cellence

This class will be taught by Chef Ani. Eggs are one of the most complex, important and ubiquitous ingredients in modern cookery. When the white and yolk are kept together, you can produce luscious scrambled eggs, piquant hard and soft boiled eggs and perfect poachers. When separated, the yolk produces rich sauces and creamy custards, while the white strengthens everything from macarons to meringue. All this power, yet it is one of the cheapest forms of protein available. The trick with taking advantage of this versatile, indispensable food is controlling temperature, selecting the right equipment and timing- and Chef Ani is ready to reveal to you all of her egg-based tricks. In this class, you’ll unscramble the science behind choosing the best eggs, storing them properly, separating cleanly and how to master the basic egg cooking methods: scrambling, poaching, custard making and working with egg whites in desserts. Class has hands on opportunities as desired. On the menu:

  • Brioche Crostini with Soft Scrambled Eggs
  • Asparagus with Hollandaise
  • Seasonal Salad with Poached Egg
  • Savory Cheese Soufflés
  • Lemon Curd with Almond Tuilles (Crisp Egg White Cookies)
