    It is said that a chef's hat or toque has 101 pleats in it, representing the number of ways the wearer can cook eggs. Are there 101 different ways to cook eggs or does it mean 101 recipes for eggs ?. If there is that many ways to cook eggs let's try and list them.

    Are you refering to a "Zabaglione" Where you take egg yolks and whip them over a double boiler with some sweet marsala wine and sugar until they thicken into a sauce and you pour over fruits..the Italian form of the "French-Style Sabayon(with white wine instead of marsala) and vice versa. How did it look/ what was the texture? What was it seved with? Good discussion!

    If you have a copy of the On Cooking (canadian edition), there is a recipe for a Mission Hill Ice Wine Sabayon. Mission Hill is made in the beautiful Okanagan Valley, in BC.
