    • TRIVIA (4)

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Dr. Penny Adcock: We figure that about 1 in 20,000 [eggs] are infected internally with salmonella.

        Alton Brown: So basically, I run about the same risk of getting sick from properly handled eggs as I would, say, getting bit by a rabid squirrel in downtown Detroit?

      • Alton Brown: Zen-like, in simplicity and complexity alike, the egg possesses the most potent powers in the kitchen universe. This mild-mannered, retro-looking carrying case houses a dynamic duo of culinary superheroes -- the yolk and the white. Both amazing in their own right, put 'em together and you got just plain dynamite. But do we really tap this wellspring of goodness? Do we use all the blades on this edible Swiss Army knife, capable of changing mere liquids into custard, of leaping tall souffle dishes in a single breath?

      • Alton Brown: They're perkier. Ha, ha. It's a perky egg.
