Archive for the ‘Michael Pollan’ tag
I live right in the center of bustling San Francisco, California USA, so this is particularly exciting. A couple of years ago I had no idea I would be farming! My cousin Cindy Christensen owns a farm, and I’ve marveled at her wide array of award winning show chickens she raises. But even when I was visiting her farm, I never considered that I would one day soon be feeding chickens and collecting eggs each morning.
The eggs my chickens have produced so far are smaller than the smallest eggs for sale at any grocery store I’ve visited.
I shot the video of me cracking these first eggs into a stainless steel pan so the background would be a light color. Normally I wouldn’t fry eggs in this pan.
Maybe it was the excitement of raising these chickens from when they were just 3 days old, but these fried eggs were the best I’ve had.
Have a look at how orange the yoke in the upper left is. I was expecting all the eggs to have yokes that color. Food writer extraordinaire Michael Pollan educated me through his book The Omnivore’s Dilemma that good eggs should have orange yokes, not yellow yokes. I am now a believer and I am certain I can taste the difference.
I shot the video above in full 1920 x 780 high definition video on my Canon EOS 5D Mark II camera.
