[MUSIC] I'm Justin Chapple from Food & Wine's Test Kitchen
and I'm at the Food & Wine class in Aspen,
hitting up my favorite chef's for their mad genius tips.
That is mad genius. [MUSIC] Jamie Bissonnette, I can't even
believe this. I know I'm catching you on the way
to breakfast, but I've got to ask. I need a
mad genius tip for some eggs. Oh awesome. Eggs are
my favorite thing to cook. I love making egg salad,
but I hate dicing them. So after I peel a
bunch of hard boiled eggs, I take a wire baking
rack and I press them through so they're done wicked
quick. That is wicked mad genius, I can not wait
to try it out. Thanks to Jamie Bisonette, I can
chop a ton of eggs. Really quickly. Check this out.
I've taken a cooling rack, sometimes called a baking rack,
and I've laid it on top of a mixing bowl.
What I'm gonna do is take my hard boiled egg,
put it on top of the rack. And then I'm
gonna take a small plate, you can also use the
palm of your hand. [MUSIC] And I'm going to press
it right through the rack. Take another egg, do the
exact same thing. This is crazy. Look how fast I'm
doing this. Is anybody timing me? [MUSIC] Take your rack
off. Look at that. I've chopped a dozen eggs in
less than a minute. And now I'm going to make
an incredible egg salad. All I've got to do Let's
add some mayonnaise, mustard and some vinegar, salt and pepper
[MUSIC] Give it a quick little mix And now. [MUSIC]
And it's delicious. [BLANK_AUDIO]
