[MUSIC] Let me show you very quick. What is this? Quail eggs. You open the quail eggs [SOUND] You see? And then, [INAUDIBLE] we get the egg and we have the water under boiling temperature. And we poach the egg. You will get a spoon, you will make sure you make this circle, a rotation. Then, because it is moving, You get one, you put it in. We got the quail egg poached, liquid inside. So we go, and we get the same slice of bread, bury it in. Right now, this is sophisticated, but it's great because I think you can do it at home. And if you can't do it the first time, don't worry, you'll do it the 20th time you try it. So you get the bread Yes you put it inside, you fold it over, like this, you get the knife, this is breaded eggs, to a little bit of the water to make sure that the bread seals. We have [UNKNOWN] olive oil and the olive oil is hot. And we put the bread right on top of the oil. Right now, we are making the bread crunchy on the outside. The eggs are inside. The egg yolk is creamy and runny, and at the end, what we have is a breaded egg that, with a little bit of salt, on its own is amazing. I wanna thank you for sharing time with me, with my country. [APPLAUSE]
