6 egg yolks

6 eggs

Absolutely gorgeous food porn my dear!

Mine is not so great looking sometimes on the plate or my photography skills lack, but I can say the mouth feel and aftertaste are orgasmic,lol

Thanks for coming over, and I experiment with quinoa so often...just tried amaranth grain for the first time, and I cannot wait to play with that too...
