Can you tell me the best way to store them and check that they are safe to eat? If you are unsure about freshness, place the raw egg in a sink of water. Fresh eggs will sink and stay at the bottom, while bad eggs will stand on end or float to the top due to air pockets inside. Store eggs in the fridge, not at room temperature -- eggs age one week for each day they are not refrigerated. It's best to keep eggs in the carton to protect them from water loss and prevent absorption of flavours and smells from other foods. Storing eggs in specifically designed compartments in the fridge can actually increase the risk of eggs being damaged. Fresher eggs should be used for poaching and frying as they hold their shape well. Older eggs are ideal for hard-boiling as they are less likely to stick to the shell. Try not to leave egg dishes (once cooked) at room temperature for longer than one hour. Kim Coverdale is food editor at Super Food Ideas.

Beefed up for outright indulgence NAME: Outback Steakhouse WHERE: Level 1, 3 George St, North Strathfield OPEN: Monday to Thursday 5pm-10pm, Saturday noon- 11pm and Sunday noon- 10pm. PROFILE: Shireen Khalil Ribs and onions are delicious at Outback Steakhouse. OUTBACK Steakhouse is doing it Aussie style. The double award winning restaurant is a must for all steak lovers, with over six different steak cuts. Managing partner Manny Rosenberg (pictured) opened Outback Steakhouse in North Strathfield four years ago. ''It's a great area and we really try to set it out to capture a great Australian feel,'' he said. There are signed prints and displays from the Northern Territory. The boys out the back really know what they're doing and Mr Rosenberg said they trained their staff to deliver the best food. ''All our food and sauces are cooked in-house except for two dishes and I think our seasons do everything for the steak and bring it to life,'' he said. Before my companion grabbed the steak dish, I had already set my fork into the Victoria's Crowned Filet ($31.95). The blue cheese just topped it off, but I'd have to say the most impressive thing was the fact I didn't need my steak knife because the meat was that tender. The Bloomin' Onion ($8.95), created 19 years ago, blossoms like a flower and is served with an irresistible spicy sauce. My companion devoured the Rip Snorter Ribs, served with chips and cinnamon apples ($26.95). Not only does Outback Steakhouse serve the best tasting food but they take the time to help local schools and charities. The restaurant has been nominated for another Restaurant Catering Association of NSW award for Best Theme Restaurant which will be announced on October 27.
