The double-yolker - the stuff of legends, folklore in some parts. It’s a rare occasion, a magic moment, not one but two creamy yellow yolks housed perfectly inside one shell.
It happened to me once, twice actually in succession. I stood at the pan after shouting my friend to see the first double yolker, no sooner had he turned to leave the kitchen before I was I jumping in the air and calling him back in - because I my friends had just cracked a second double—yolker, honestly, it was a quad yolk moment.
The odds of this happening are around one in a million - or at least they were until today. That’s because the magic chance of a double yolker has been bottled, packed and sold with the news that the Marks & Spencers supermarket chain in the UK are to start selling packs of guaranteed double-yolk eggs.
The chain will use a technique called candling to hold eggs up to light and identify which ones contain more than one yolk. A box of six double-yolk eggs, 12 yolks, will cost £2.75.
Geranium's Rasmus Kofoed has decided to stop serving meat at the restaurant currently ranked number two on the World's 50 Best Restaurants list. But the Danish chef isn't yet willing to go purely plant-based.
