I was slamming out some A/V code when my boss dropped off this bizarre thing on my desk and told me to try it:
It was a pastry with an egg in the middle. An egg in its shell. Very odd, especially for someone like me who doesn’t know anything about food preparation. I asked around and others believed it to be a hard boiled egg in a pastry. Sounds OK, but what’s a hard boiled egg?
Seriously, I know the name is self-evident but I had never eaten a hard boiled egg. Enter Wikipedia…ah, so I can simply remove the shell and eat the egg? What’s it doing in a pastry? Where did it come from?
It seemed that the thing to do was to peel back the tentacled pastry limbs and take a stab at the egg, which turned out to be very good! It’s amazing what I’ve been missing all this time.
Anyway, have any of you seen one of these before?
