What's in a Name?
So, he's not just going to teach you how to cook with eggs? Chef Egg can whip up a pretty good omelet, but that's not where he got the name. It's actually a childhood nickname that was hung on him by neighborhood friends. During the summer, all of the kids in the neighborhood would go up to the pool. During a lazy day of swimming, the bigger kids would often toss the little ones into the air to make cannonballs. Egg, being the smallest one of all, would curl up in a ball for the big splash. All the kids said he looked just like an egg. So, the name stuck and the rest is history!
