"The Queen, in the 65th year of her age (as we were told), very majestic; her face oblong, fair but wrinkled; her eyes small, yet black and pleasant; her nose a little hooked, her lips narrow, and her teeth black (a defect the English seem subject to, from their too great use of sugar)."

Gastón Acurio on eggs

"La magia del huevo en diez movimientos: Un gesto, pasado. Dos gestos, duro. Tres, poche. Cuatro, frito. Cinco, revuelto. Seis, omelette. Siete, tortilla. Ocho, merengue. Nueve, mayonesa, Diez souffle. De todos los miles de ingredientes del mundo, solo el huevo es capaz de dar tanto por tan poco."

- The magic of the egg in ten movements: One act, passed. Two acts, hard. Three, poached. Four, fried. Five, scrambled. Six, omelette. Seven, tortilla. Eight, meringue. Nine, mayonnaise. Ten, souffle. Of all the thousands of ingredients in the world, only the egg has the capacity to give so much for so little.
