I just love deviled eggs. I could eat ten in one sitting and probably have room for more. I added a little bit of curry to the recipe, giving this classic party dish an Eastern Indian twist. I find that the best place to purchase eggs is at the farmers’ market because you can ask the vendors questions about the way the hens are treated and what they are fed.–Anna Getty
LC The Devil's in the Details Note
The devil, so to speak, is in the details when it comes to making this simple yet scintillating appetizer. You want a recipe in which the timing is just right, the flavorings are obvious but not overwhelming, and the presentation polished but not pretentious. This is it.
