This is fascinating. A ramen restaurant in Los Angeles went to a lot of effort to make eggless eggs that look like the real deal.

Chef’s Table France
I’ve watched the first episode of Chef’s Table France and loved it as the chef switches from meat-focused to vegetable-focused dishes and still retains 3 Michelin stars.
