Having missed the farmers' market today, I was at the Bowery Whole Foods picking up some eggs. And then I saw these beauties...
When you're in the mood for a truly remarkable omelette
Ostrich eggs. Local, even. You can see the quail eggs on the shelf above for size reference.
I'm told it takes a hammer to open one of these eggs... and a brave soul to harvest them.
To be honest, I'm not sure what's more impressive, their girth or their price tag.
