Celebrity chef James Martin has waded into the debate over whether eggs should be stored in the fridge or cupboard, stating he would ‘never’ refrigerate them
While the British egg safety body states the fridge is the best place for eggs, Martin told Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby on This Morning they should ‘never be put in the fridge’ because ‘they are all porous’.
He said eggs eventually ‘absorb all the flavours of the fridge’ due to the shell’s texture. However, eggs kept in the fridge do have a longer shelf life than otherwise.
Martin has previously called on Britons to boycott margarine, and wants it pulled from shelves entirely.
‘It’s dreadful, dreadful stuff – it’s two elements away from plastic, it’s horrendous stuff,’ he said.
