Elliott Carter

Today is Elliott Carter's 98th birthday. I posted on his birthday in 2004 and in 2005. Matthew Guerrieri's list of recipes named for composers includes this:

Eggs Carter: Break an egg into a pan with a multitude of other ingredients, and place on the stove. Continually and simultaneously vary both the temperature and the cooking time. The dish is done when the aggregate intervals of the other ingredients allegorically crush the individuality of the egg.

  1. . . . allegorically crush the individuality of the egg.

    Couldn't that be achieved, simply by seating it in a carton as part of a dozen? . . .
