Leftover Easter Eggs Get New Life

We empty-nesters no longer color Easter eggs, but I still enjoy having hard-boiled eggs on hand at Easter time. Eggs symbolize spring and the cycle of life: birth, death, and re-birth. In culinary terms, the chicken lays the eggs (birth), we cook the eggs (death), and we use the leftover eggs in creative new recipes (re-birth). So here we go: delicious leftover eggs in four easy recipes, including hors d’oeuvres, egg salads and even a delicious stuffing.

Where possible — buy local

Located in the pricey neighborhood of Chungdam-dong, this is the second Wolfgang’s Steakhouse in Asia following Japan. The restaurant will use the same dry aging of 28 days on site meat locker. I have always complained that Seoul needs a good steakhouse and now it may be the start of U.S. steak trend in Seoul pending Wolfgang’s success. It also give many visitors to Korea a comfort food break from all the spices. The restaurant has two floors with a capacity of 200 persons.
