Weekend Cooking: The Egg Cookbook

The Egg Cookbook: The Creative Farm-to-Table…    

The Egg Cookbook: Fresh Farm to Table Guide to Cooking Eggs

Healdsburg Press, 2014

The Egg Cookbook is a wonderful guide with dozens of recipes covering topics from quick and easy eggs (scrambled, poached, etc) to sauces (hollandaise) and appetizers and snacks (grilled egg stuffed mushrooms anybody?). Prior to getting my hands on this book, my egg expertise consisted of simple scrambled eggs and poached eggs. This book helped add many new recipes to my kitchen. It’s particularly helpful with a toddler on board, who loves eggs, but gets bored with the same meal. He is human afterall.

The book is divided into 2 parts Part 1: Understanding Eggs discusses the nature of eggs, basic cooking and preparation tips. There is a lot of time dedicated to raising chickens, which will be helpful as that is quickly becoming a growing pastime. A friend of mine in Portland had chickens in her backyard and often raved about the eggs they laid. Part 2 covers a wide range of recipes. There is a nice selection of vegetarian and paleo-recipes, so no rock has been left unturned. Everyone will find at least one recipe that meets their needs.

Sadly, I think this book is only available as an ebook right now. But it is incredibly easy to navigate, with quick links on the sidebar to take you exactly where you want to go. I highly recommend this book for anyone feels like they want to expand their skills from the basic scrambled eggs.

Weekend Cooking is open to anyone who has any kind of food-related post to share: Book (novel, nonfiction) reviews, cookbook reviews, movie reviews, recipes, random thoughts, gadgets, quotations, photographs. If your post is even vaguely foodie, feel free to grab the button and link up anytime over the weekend. You do not have to post on the weekend. Please link to your specific post, not your blog’s home page. For more information, see the welcome post.

  1. This sounds like a book I could use. While I’m relatively skilled in the kitchen I feel like I missing some of the very basic skills especially when ti comes to eggs. I like that they have a sidebar because I normally don’t like to use cookbooks in ebook form because they can be hard to navigate.

  2. I love eggs, so this book sounds like one I’d like to try. Going now to find it!

  3. I love eggs too and I’m going to look for this book.

  4. We love eggs too! This sounds like the eBook designers did a good a job.

  5. I love eggs, but not e-cookbooks. Sure hope it is available in print at some point.

  6. I have always liked the idea of having chickens for a source of fresh eggs. I make a tasty version of ham and cheese quiche.
