American Egg Board’s “The Incredible Egg Challenge” has kicked off for its second year, hosted by renowned baker, food influencer and cookbook author Joy Wilson, known in the baking world as Joy the Baker.
The three-week competition celebrates the versatility of eggs and the joy of springtime by inviting top bakers, chefs and crafters to compete for the prized “Golden Egg,” free breakfast for a year and a donation to the hunger-relief charity of their choice.
“Eggs are the champion of the spring season and your favorite foodie influencers are on a mission to showcase all the possibilities eggs have to offer,” says Emily Metz, president and chief executive officer of the American Egg Board. “Our challengers are celebrating all the delights of the Easter season with some incredible dishes, décor and desserts.”
Three noteworthy tastemakers, including culinary and food connoisseur Inga Lam, crafting and décor maestro Kara Whitten and décor and DIY star Ashley Rose, will compete for the best egg creations of the season. Each will share tips on how to design the ultimate brunch counter for Easter morning, recipes for awe-inspiring desserts and how to step up your egg decorating game.
“I’m beyond excited to be hosting The Incredible Egg Challenge this year, celebrating my favorite staple of the Easter and spring season, eggs, and challenging these three amazing foodies to get creative this spring,” says Joy Wilson.
