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.
