Chinese eggs


Aug 2006

The first is the so called "100 year-old egg" without the shell. This is actually just 3 months old and dipped for a while into a special mix of mud and grass so it can turn to this strange black color, making most of westerners run away instead of tasting it. The ones not running away won't feel the taste is very strong.
The second one is the salty egg.
Le premier oeuf est l"oeuf " de 100 ans" sans sa coquille. Il n'a en fait été pondu que 3 mois auparavant et macéré pendant un certain temps dans un mélange spécial de boue et d'herbes qui le fait tourner au noir, provoquant la fuite de la plupart des occidentaux qui ne préfèrent pas y goûter. Ceux qui tentent l'expérience se rendent compte que le goût n'est pas si fort.
Le deuxième est l'oeuf salé.
