Hi - I'm Jenn de la Vega, but I should really change my last name to de la Vegg. One of my favorite things to do on Instagram is pop egg yolks. You'll see my fork, chop stick, carrot or breadstick slowly creep into frame before piercing the bulbous yolk.
And what happens next is the oddly sexual flow of yellow, a spurt of what once was shining and bright. It's extremely satisfying to watch.
Many of my videos are filmed in the comfort of my own home and I've been the only one enjoying a year of luscious eggs.
I want to cook 100 eggs and film 100 consecutive egg yolk pops!
Here's where you come in! You can eat, decorate, pop and name yours. We will have an aerial camera set up on a table where we will document each pop. We'll edit them together in a glorious montage of yolk porn.
What are our expenses?
- 120 eggs (extra in case of breakage!)
- Egg cooking: butter, oil
- Popping implements: forks, chopsticks, asparagus, grissini, bread, carrots
- Toppings: tomato sauce, pesto, cheese, spices, bacon & more (will be posted fully in a backer update).
- For eating: plates, napkins, breakfast drinks
- Cameraperson & editing
If we reach our goal, every additional $25 will go toward a new topping option for everyone. And refreshments, like mimosas! I will take suggestions if you tweet me @Randwiches.
If you are unable to make the February 11th date, please change your pledge to the AQUAFABA tier to show your support. Each of the tiers has exactly 25 slots for people who can make it.
Who: You & me & an egg.
What: An epic day of egg eats.
Where: Brooklyn, NY
When: Saturday, February 11th. A backer survey will go out to confirm a time slot with you.
Why: For the love of eggs.
You will check in at your designated time and will meet with me when your name is called. While you wait you can meet other egg enthusiasts and browse the menu of toppings. I'll cook your egg, top it and send you off to the photo booth. You'll place your egg down. We'll document the name of your egg, recipe and your own personal pop.
After we're all done, we'll share all the GIFs and epic yolk porn video for all to enjoy.
*Don't live in Brooklyn? I'd love to bring an egg popping party to your town in 2017. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to see how we can make it happen.
Risks and challenges
There is no way I will perfectly cook 100 eggs, we'll have to budget for extra eggs.
I have my New York City food handler's license, so you can be sure that I will take your food safety as seriously as possible. I'm also obligated to say consuming raw or undercooked meats, poultry, seafood, shellfish, or eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness. If you've got a sensitive immune system, it might be best to sit this out.
Toppings will be first-come, first served. If we run out, we run out. But I'll make sure there are a lot of options for you to choose from.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
