There's a new answer to the conundrum of which came first, the chicken or the egg.

In this case it is a test tube, a food science laboratory... and the desire to create a vegan version of the hard-boiled egg.

The V-egg-ie appears to be the perfect recreation of the real thing, including a vivid yellow yolk, but it has never been anywhere near a chicken.
