Joshua Thomas, the executive sous chef at Dévi, was with us at the farm on New Year's Eve. It was nice to have fellow New Yorkers with whom to toast the new year as midnight arrived. Little did we know what was in store for us New Year's Day. Joshua offered to make his mother, Susy Cherian's Egg Roast, a dish he has grown up eating, and one he loves: and now, so does everyone that ate it on the 1st of January.
Why did I keep this a secret all this while? Not sure... But all I can say is that this dish, the egg roast, will make anyone who has ever wanted to do something new with eggs, beg the Cherians to document this and other favorites of their family.
