Eggs are having a culinary moment....
If you're looking for a little more to do with your eggs this weekend than dip them in vegetable dye, you won't have any trouble finding inspiration. Eggs are having a culinary moment, and their fashionable rise is in stark contrast to their status as a common everyday staple. Chefs have taken eggs past the breakfast table and are adding them to everything from salads to stews and ramen for a hit of protein, texture and colour. We're also seeing deviled eggs in bar menus everywhere (we admit they do go well with a glass of wine, artisan brew or cocktail), but these aren't your grandmother's version. If you want to ride the egg wave at home, this is a good weekend to start. Beautifully curved and highly delicate, the egg is the most ubiquitous symbol of Easter, an ancient symbol of new life, rebirth and Spring.
