Crack, crack, the egg shells would go. I bet sales of shampoo went through the roof that day every year! Even now, I smile each time I crack an egg in the kitchen. What three ingredients can't you live without?
Eggs it goes without saying , olive oil, salt. I wouldn't dream of navigating this crazy world of cookbooks without them and their amazing team by my side.
