steamed eggs have been showing up more and more in the youtube cooking channels and recent cookbooks. Simple dish with excellent payoff.
It was Hung Huynh, season 3.There was an episode of Top Chef, maybe season 5?, where the Quickfire challenge was a mise en place race. One step was to break down 4 or 5 chickens. This Vietnamese guy, Hu Han or something like that, was AMAZING at it, taking maybe 2 minutes to do them all. He broke down all the chickens in the time it was taking others to do just one. Tom Colicchio, the head judge, stood there for a second with this dazed look on his face, like "Did I really see what I just saw?"
Anyway, the dish I will present next will not require much deboning.
