I have always wanted to taste duck eggs since reading Swallowdale, but they are not your common Aldi fare. Anyway I found a Chinese shop that sells them for 1 USD per egg, about 3 times the price of a chicken egg. It shows the modern inhumanity to the chicken not the duck.

They are about 50% bigger and they are a bit smoother, but not quite up to Roger's description.

In the mornings, my daughter likes scrambled eggs, not buttered eggs. The conversation goes something like this:

Duck or chicken?


White or brown?




Olive oil or butter?

Olive oil

The American rubbish or the Italian smooth

"Not much oil Dad"


Tabasco sauce?

Of course

End of story.
