    "straight-up egg" V.S "egg wash"

    A guy asks the chef when the latter said:

    "We will dip the chicken in the egg"

    The guy says:

    "Straight-up egg or is it egg wash"

    What is the difference between the two?

    Thanks.

    Re: "straight-up egg" V.S "egg wash"

    I’m not a teacher.

    Hi maiabulela,

    straight-up egg = cooked sunny-side up; having to do with eggs cooked with the yolks facing up
    an “egg wash” is beaten egg mixed with a small of quantity liquid

    Egg Wash


    Regards,

    V.

    By straight-up egg I would assume he means a beaten raw egg with no liquid added, not a cooked egg. In another example, if you order a drink "straight-up," you want it without anything else added to it.

    An egg wash is a beaten egg but often has a little water, milk or cream mixed in with it.

    Given the context of a chef instructing someone to dip the chicken in the egg, it seems likely that it's a raw egg and not a cooked one, even on the West coast
