yes, mr. earl's status is now officially that of BGE ROCK GOD. .. .saturday at waldorf was my fourth fest (between 3 at waldorf and 1 at atlanta). .. .and i saw something i'd never seen before. . ..[p]first, mr. earl is well known for some fabulous creations on the egg (most notably his white truffel chicken, and jerk sausage). .. but on saturday he outdid himself. .. he made salt encrusted chilean sea bass on the egg (basically, he prepared a salt concoction, spread on a pizza stone, then laid on two fish - not sure what special prep they recieved- then entombed the whole thing in more of the salt mixture, and baked it in the egg)... when the stone came out, and they knocked away the salt crust, the most moist, delicious fish came out. ..the stuff was incredible!! . . .[p]and here is where i saw something i've never seen before at an eggfest. .. there were probably 75 people standing around him watching this, cameras snapping away....and when the fish emerged from the salt, the crowd actually broke out in a spontanious eruption of applause. . .. first time i've ever seen a standing ovation at an eggfest. .. .and well deserved.. .[p]if the pope had been there, mr. earl would probably have been elevated to saint-hood on the spot (hey i kinda like the idea of changing his name again . . .to. . "saint earl". .heee). . but the best i can do is bow down to him as a true egg-god. . .
