    Years ago I watched a chef performing his magic inside a front window of a restaurant in
    New York City.
    For years I have attempted to duplicate his trick without success.

    His act simply consisted of putting a fork in the center of eggs being scrambled. He would twist his fork and the eggs would follow the fork and become a perfect pyramid.

    I wonder if anyone can tell me how he did it.

    The statement that there’s more than 100 ways to cook and eggs is flawed. What they really mean is that there are more than 100 recipes in which to serve eggs. The cooking of the egg can really only be done by frying, boiling, baking, and now microwaving. I may have missed some obscure way to cook but really there’s less than a dozen.
