egg Basics around the world

No matter how it is cooked –boiled, poached, fried, microwaved, or baked— this oval or rounded body surrounded by a shell is used for a variety of recipes. This month, our culinary world tour continues in highlighting one of the most common, celebrated, delicious and nutritious ingredients: eggs.

1. Jay Fai - One MICHELIN Star - Bangkok, Thailand

Cutting into Jay Fai’s famous "Khai Jeaw Pu" reveals succulent, generous chunks of sweet lump crab, held together by just enough egg

Jay Fai is a place that both taxi drivers and foodies wax lyrical about and it’s easy to see why. Wearing her signature goggles, the local legend that is Jay Fai continues what her father started 70 years ago and makes crab omelettes, crab curries and dry congee.

The Chef Joaquín Baezalack and his Black Egg: egg on potatoes, cod, black garlic and spinach.

A restaurant that exudes a passion for cooking, plenty of experience and subtle contrasts in which the deliberately cultivated simplicity is compensated by high levels of gastronomic skill.

The 1,876 copper tiles hanging from the ceiling are quite a spectacle, but they don’t outshine the Taiwanese cuisine on the table – reinvented with local produce, French techniques and artful plating.

4. Roast - MICHELIN Plate - London, UK
The Chef Stuart Cauldwell and his pork, sage and onion Scotch egg.

Known for its British food and for promoting UK producers – not surprising considering the restaurant’s in the heart of Borough Market. They take quite a lot of large tables but the bright room is big enough to cope.
