New Allergy Test

Well, I am holding the results of a new allergy test and, drum roll please, I'm no longer allergic to eggs!!! I have no food allergies, save a very mild allergy to oysters.

All of the medical professionals I've ever consulted about this have told me that there was no cure. This is nothing short of a miracle! It was an allergy that I had since a very young age, but didn't stop eating them until an allergy test in 1991 reported eggs in the severe level.

I received the new report from my doc today and this evening I ate my first egg, at least intentionally, in 16 years. I have to say, my expectations exceeded the taste, but I'm not disappointed. To eat an egg knowing that there would be no allergic reaction is cause for joy!

Congratulations!! One less obstacle from being a great chef. I am really happy for you. :-)

Thanks William! I was so excited to read the report, but had to read it 3 times before I really believed I hadn't missed something. Trust but verify. ;-)

It will be so much easier to develop egg-free recipes because I can taste the original to compare flavor, texture, etc.
