Is there anything in the food world as wonderfully packaged and divinely luscious as your basic egg? It's the magical ingredient that can bask in the glow of its own light, scrambled, poached, or fried and lends a hand with other ingredients to puff up a souffle, add rise to a cake, and substance to a sauce.
So, it's no surprise that the next Cooks Confab is turning its attention to eggs. The confabularie is preparing brunch on Sunday, March 7 from 10:00 a.m. to 1 p.m. and this time newest member Trey Foshee of George's California Modern in La Jolla is hosting.
Here's a taste of what you'll be tasting and the chefs who are preparing it for us:
Katie Grebow (Cafe Chloe)/Amy DiBiase (Roseville)
Celebration of Egg Sauces
Bearnaise - Roast Top Sirloin
Gribiche - Local Asparagus
