Chef De Cuisine


Description

In the late 1960’s film classic Cool Hand Luke, Paul Newman’s devil-may-care attitude lands him in a Florida jail for cutting off the heads of parking meters. Outnumbered, Newman is dared by his cellmates to eat 50 hard-boiled eggs in an hour. Fueled by his stubborn instincts and unwillingness to conform, Newman trumps his naysayers and defies all odds – proving that he can accomplish anything he sets his mind to.

It’s this ethos on which our company was founded. 50 Eggs is a place where ideas become plans, plans become actions and actions become success and growth. It’s a place where we always find a way to overcome the impossible – a place where we can eat 50 Eggs.
