Bad Egg

Never, no matter how much of a hurry you're in, crack an egg into a pan of food directly. Always, always crack it into a bowl first in case it's bad. Ho-hum.

My brother wanted a wok for his birthday -- a proper steel one, not a non-stick easy work. So I've bought him one and spent some time this afternoon scrubbing, then seasoning it. To finish up I cooked dinner in it. Noodles, pork, prawns, water chestnuts, garlic, ginger, chilli, five spice, spring onions, rice wine, bad egg, in the bin.

The wok worked beautifully and the cooking of the dish helped settle the surface I'm sure. I just wish we'd been able to eat the results too.


  1. You could always test to see if the egg is fresh before cracking it? Or is that just too organised?

  2. Pippa says it was a lovely supper:)
