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.

Asian Noodle Salad with Hard-Boiled Egg

Featuring a blend of beautiful blanched vegetables and noodles, this is a highly customizable dish. Choose from produce and pasta you already stock to create your signature dish. Whisk together a lively ginger vinaigrette to bring it all together and slice a delicious premade boiled egg in half for an eye-catching finish. Thanks to rapid cooking methods, this gorgeous meal-in-a-bowl won’t slow down your busy kitchen, even at peak times — which is perfect, given the growing “Need for Speed” trend among consumers.

The versatility of this dish extends to how it can be transported and served to your customer — delivery, take-out or dine-in are all fair game.

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