Chef Alice Waters of Berkeley, Calif. really enjoys cooking a egg over a fire in a hand-forged iron egg spoon. This is a rather specific piece of cutlery that requires on open fire. Perhaps a pizza oven would do but it’s made for the fire. She has had a blacksmith make these spoons available for sale at $250 each.
And it seems a lot of people have a lot to say about all of this. Not sure why it’s such a big deal but it has caused a bit of a kerfuffle. I think the concept is great and I’m sure it makes a great fire cooked egg. And I’d like to try it, but I’m not sure why all the fuss.
