International Year of Chemistry: no fire for a fried egg

MATERIALS:
- An egg.
- A plate or a bowl.
- Alcohol.
INSTRUCTIONS:
- Break the egg and put it in the plate.
- Pour some alcohol on it.
- Wait half an hour.
- It's a fried egg!
WHY?
Eggs contain proteins. When you heat proteins they undergo a structural change called denaturation. You can get the same result with alcohol. In this process the egg white becomes solid and white.
