I’m about to share with you an apparently highly guarded secret. At least in my recent unscientific survey of industry colleagues waiting for a meeting to begin, I found I was the only one who knew about it. Secret or not, I’m sharing it with you, and thinking the product and menu development people among you might be happy I did.
I speak of “Food52,” a veritable treasure chest of food facts, musings, recipes, histories and hacks. Consider subjects like Poached Eggs Belong on a Bed of Yogurt; The Surprising, Unorthodox Ingredient for Loftier, Fluffier Biscuits (hint: it’s an egg); and did-you-knows like What’s Really Happening Inside a Whiskey Barrel?
It’s a food fiend’s delight.
I’m hoping your introduction to this wealth of food-related intel will be helpful. Full disclosure, this is a consumer site, but don't roll your eyes until you take a look. The area to which I'm about to direct you may very well give you the inspiration for your next menu hit.
Enjoy the Masala Unda, basically Indian deviled eggs with ginger, coconut and garlic. The skillet of Spicy Rice Cakes with 7-minute Eggs might be more to your taste or maybe the Bacon & Egg Ramen or Shakshuka Pizza. These are among the 136 recipes that were entries into the site’s 2016 contest, “Your Favorite Way to Eat Eggs for Dinner.”
I hope you find the recipes showcasing creative uses of eggs at dinner of interest, but that’s just one aspect of this site. You’ll find hundreds of recipes and unique uses for any foods and ingredients you may find interesting – the unusual, the little known and the historic can be found here. I hope you enjoy it and that your menu may be the more interesting for it.
