I’m the proud owner of six soon to be laying hens. My family loves eating eggs but in personally knowing one can only have fried, scrambled, or boiled eggs so often before becoming bored, I needed some new go to suggestions. The Perfect Egg: A Fresh Take on Recipes for Morning, Noon, and Night cookbook has been a God-send. This book is a well of information and offers up over 70 fresh ideas for breakfasts, lunches, dinners, snacks, and desserts. I appreciate the work the authors have done in taking something as simple as an Egg and spotlighted it’s wonderful diversity to please even the most picky of palettes.
The Egg Info section in the beginning of the book I wasn’t expecting. This section breaks down absolutely everything one would typically ask about eggs and goes further than even that. I’m happy it was included and feel I can make more educated decision in storing, decoding egg cartons, and knowing the typical differences in the variety of eggs available. There’s a page that breaks down the sheer anatomy of an egg with a marked full color photographic image and explanatory text. This book certainly gets my approval for being a resource in our home economics studies.
The recipes found in this book are easy and practical enough for anyone to cook. Who knew some of these fancy-modern recipes are actually quite simple to whip up? I found that most of the ingredients you’d find in any general grocery store. There’s nothing worse than finding what seems to be an exceptional cookbook only to come to the conclusion that you’d need ingredients not to be found anywhere.
Overall, I’m quite pleased with the easy to follow recipes, the variety in every category, and the mouth watering photos for every single one. This book has certainly given me a boost of confidence in my cooking of eggs and solved the dilemma of what to do with all those extra I’ll be getting soon. My highest of recommendations.
