There aren’t many one-size-fits-all food items in the world. Eggs are that rarest of ingredients you’ll find in every culture and cuisine.

There is always a way to make eggs work with your theme. Eggs are familiar to everyone, allowing them to slot into any menu comfortably. They’re non-seasonal, too - they’ll be there when you need them and interest in eggs won’t fluctuate throughout the year.

Here are just two examples of how eggs can find a home anywhere they go.

Chinese Braised Soy Sauce Eggs

If Chinese, pan-Asian, or fusion cuisine is your market, eggs can play a starring role in so many dishes.

Peel soft-boiled eggs and marinate them in a simmering bath of soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sugar, dried chilies, star anise, and cinnamon sticks. After soaking in the warm marinade for a few hours, turn off the heat and let the whole mixture rest overnight. Slice the finished eggs in half and serve on a bed of rice, over noodles, or in a brothy soup.

The dramatic colours and rich taste are sure to launch your dish onto foodie Instagram accounts everywhere.

Chipsi Mayai

Call it International, call it Multicultural, or call it homestyle cooking - global cuisine and eggs are a perfect match.

A popular dish from the streets of Tanzania, you wouldn’t be far off if you called this crispy marvel a French Fry Omelette. The traditional recipe begins with deep-frying batonnet-cut potatoes and softened onions. Whisk your eggs and pour over the potatoes and onions in a skillet, then flip, and cook until the surface is crisped. Served with a side of kachumbari (or your go-to spicy condiment), and hot chilies for an anytime meal with life-affirming heat.

A simple, approachable dish like this will work equally well at your local table service establishment or your hip downtown food truck.
