Eggs, a food ingredient strongly associated with chickens, are also laid by poultry like ducks and turkeys. A fundamental and versatile foodstuff, a single chicken egg is an ideal source of protein with high biological values (BV) reaching up to 100. Eggs appeal to everyone, and anyone from novice home cooks to professional chefs enjoy boiling, frying, whisking, and even incorporating the raw ingredient into endless culinary creations. They star in ubiquitous Western brunch dishes like Eggs Benedict, croque madame, and scrambled eggs, and they shine in classic Asian steamed eggs and rolled omelets. Without a doubt, eggs are a staple across the globe. Now the conversation has turned to animal welfare, sparking a remarkable rise in free-range, organic eggs and egg alternatives as a substitute for animal protein.

EGG quotes
The reason why eggs are major parts of breakfast and brunchggs is that eggs are a universal ingredient that everyone loves, no matter their cultural background. Another reason could be their high protein content, which fills you up and gives you the nutrition you need to kick-start the day.
Bill Granger, Founder of Bills, Granger & Co
Eggs are a wonderful ingredient to give a light and casual vibe. The sight of soft-boiled eggs oozing across a piece of bread can sharpen the appetite, making a stark contrast between the yellowish yolk and the white… Since the eggs are very subtle in taste, the original flavors shine beautifully.
Walter Manzke, Owner-chef of République
