10. Eggs Benedict – 2000
Eggs Benedict is another meal everyone has heard of. Once again, simplicity is the key to success. The poached yolk is combined with deep-fried mayonnaise and hollandaise was easy to make. And more about the eggs you can learn from the man with the idea.
“We didn’t want to mess with the way eggs Benedict tasted because there’s nothing wrong with it — in fact, it’s great. We wanted someone to go, ‘That doesn’t look like eggs Benedict!’” said Dufresne. “The idea was if you close your eyes, and you take a piece of the hollandaise, and a piece of the egg yolk, and a little bit of the ham and the chive in your mouth — whatever any individual’s eggs Benedict memory is, they should be able to tap into it.”
