About The Perfect Egg
A cookbook all about eggs, with 70 diverse recipes for meals, snacks, and desserts, from the team behind the beloved food blog Spoon Fork Bacon.
Eggs are one of the world’s super-star foods: inexpensive, protein-rich, versatile, and easily renewable. Every culture has its own take on eggs—for breakfast, lunch, and dinner—and The Perfect Egg features a dazzling, delicious variety of globally influenced dishes. From Blackberry Stuffed Croissant French Toast to Hot and Sour Soup, and from Poached Yolk-Stuffed Ravioli to Creamy Lemon Curd Tart, the more than seventy recipes in The Perfect Egg offer a fresh, unique, and modern take on the most humble of foods.
Confession. I love eggs. I love friend eggs. I love scrambled eggs. I love hard boiled and softboiled eggs. I love poached eggs…well, you get the picture. So I was super excited to review The Perfect Egg.
There are so many recipes that I can’t wait to try – I love the take on what I call “nest eggs” in my house (chicken eggs in toast), called “Mini-Toad-in-a Hole Sandwiches” which uses quail eggs.
The first part of this book is all about eggs- you’ll learn about different kinds of eggs, and more importantly, tips to prepare eggs. So if you don’t know how to make a French omelet, this is the book for you! The first section is also all about “basic recipes” which include things like mayo, hollandaise, creme anglaise, bernaise, basic egg pasta, etc. This is a great little “primer” section and I can’t wait to master these recipes.
The rest of the book is arranged into sections of: Morning, Snacks, Afternoon, Night, and Sweets, and the recipes are amazing. From typical things you would expect, like creme brulee, to the unexpected spaetzle with Swedish meatballs, this is a book that will have something for every chef.
