More About This Recipe
  • Make your scrambled eggs a whole new creamy and delicious way! When I visited Paris a few months ago, I expected to be over the moon about the Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Arc de Triomphe, and Champs-Élysées. And of course, those things did not disappoint. I even expected to fall in love with the famous cuisine, some of which I’ve tried making myself from my favorite Julia Child classic, Mastering the Art of French Cooking. What I did not expect was to be blown away by… scrambled eggs. Every morning we had these eggs in the hotel restaurant just around the corner from the Arc de Triomphe. And on the final day, I asked to speak with the chef. Through the English-speaking server, he told me this is how he makes these fluffy and irresistibly creamy eggs. And my breakfast shall never be the same. Never ever. All you need are some nice fresh eggs, milk, cream, salt and pepper. The important thing here is the cream. No substitutes! Consider yourself enlightened. From now on, it’ll be very hard to eat rubbery, dry scrambled eggs!
