Tired of sunny scrambled eggs?
Life is full of times when one has to face dreaded questions. There’s the “when are you getting married?” tita question, the question “how much salary do you expect?” during a job interview, and “when to let go?” when relationships are no longer in cloud nine. All of these questions and more are difficult to answer, yet we cannot avoid them. But if there’s one that people are quick to answer, it’s the question “can you cook?” The answer can only go two ways. First, they’ll just drop in a few dishes they’ve mastered over the years. The other, they’ll just say they can cook an egg, which is code for “I can’t cook”.
Well, if you also have to answer the egg, life and meals can be pretty boring with your harsh, scrambling, and sunny cycle. Luckily, celebrity chef Myke “Tatung” Sarthou has shared simple and easy egg recipes from his Simpol kitchen that you can try at home. Take the challenge and make 2022 the year you can say “I can cook an egg like no other”.
