Welcome to the Joshua David Stein Variety Hour… Half Hour with host Joshua David Stein! Join in as every Sunday night Joshua will talk about food in wild and weird ways while featuring a musical guest. In this brand-new show, listen in as Joshua David Stein talks eggs in his pilot episode. Recently eating at The Egg Shop on the Lower East Side in NYC, Joshua gives his review (along with a little egg-erotica) on the staple egg sandwich. To chime in on the topic, Michael Ruhlman, author of Egg: A Culinary Exploration of the World’s Most Versatile Ingredient, joins the program and gives his take on the vital role of the egg in most every cuisine. Tune in for the premier episode! This program was brought to you by The International Culinary Center.
“The key is a soft roll or soft bread. I actually choose probably the worst bread for you: plain white sandwich bread.” [10:40]
“[The egg sandwich] is all about not losing the flavor of the egg, so I think minimal ingredients, very thin, shatteringly thin bacon, a minimum of cheese, soft bread, and some good mayonnaise.” [11:51]
