The Truth About Eggs
If you've been avoiding eggs for fear of their high cholesterol content, there's good news: The latest scientific research shows overwhelming evidence that saturated fat, not dietary cholesterol, is what can affect blood cholesterol. Eggs are nutrient dense. In fact, they're the highest-quality source of protein available (after mother's milk) and they're even low in calories (seventy-five per large egg). So for almost everyone, eating an egg or two every day is perfectly fine.
South Africa is one of the so-called New World wine countries, along with Australia, New Zealand, and the Americas, but its wines best reflect the balance of the European tradition. A South African chardonnay will make a marvelous partner for this Italian-inspired dish.
