I learned the most delicious way to make golden eggs from a street vendor in India. No, I did not go to India (I wish!), but I did watch a documentary of various street vendors cooking eggs and learned some tricks of the trade. A tender, fragrant two-egg omelet can be cooked to perfection in a skillet where butter has been browned on low heat, with turmeric which turns the omelet golden. Yummy! I learned this from an old man who appeared to have been standing at his street side grill for forty years, weary and dulled by repetitions; I saw his timing, and how he turned the omelet to keep it high. I am grateful for the learning, and my prayer goes to him for rest and pleasure in India.
