Ramen: Eggs for Ramen | Ajitsuke Tamago | 味付け玉子

Every time I invite people to experience ramen for the first time and they pick the toppings, I suggest to include eggs. In the menu, they read “pickled” or “marinated” next to the eggs and say “No.” I smile and order extra eggs for my bowl of ramen, because I know what’s going to happen next — they will see them, ask for a bite, and I’ll have to share. Why didn’t you order them? — I ask. They are simply expected to be similar to American vinegary pickled eggs, which do not have a lot of fans these days. Ajitsuke tamago are completely different. They are soft with runny yolk and seasoned in a savory broth based on soy sauce. They are delicious!

Romantic Breakfast: Smoked Fish Benedict

Eggs Benedict is an American breakfast dish — two halves of English muffin, a slice of ham or bacon, and a poached egg are served with hollandaise sauce. There are many variations on the basic recipe. The one I use in my Romantic Breakfast: Mastering Eggs Recipes cooking class comes from the Two for Tonight: Pure Romance from L’Auberge Chez François cookbook. It belongs to Alsatian cuisine, which combines the rustic simplicity of neighboring Germany and French finesse. My version below is adopted to our locally available ingredients. I use smokey reduced cream sauce with vegetables instead of Hollandaise.

Real tenderness can’t be confused…

Real tenderness can’t be confused,
It’s quiet and can’t be heard.
Don’t bother, there’s really no use
In wrapping my shoulders with fur.
In vain you whisper sweet lies
About falling under love’s spell,
Your stubborn and hungry eyes –
I’m afraid, I know them too well!

Ramps and Bacon Omelet

There are many ways to make an omelet. Rolled French omelette is one of my favorite. It is good plain, but even better when flavored with herbs and rolled with grated cheese. It is absolutely amazing with chives and ramps!
