I love to cook and bake. I especially love to incorporate the food we raise here on the farm into the recipes that I prepare for our family. Of all the food we produce ourselves, the fresh eggs from our heritage breed hens are my favorite to serve at our family table here at 1840 Farm.
So, when Sasquatch Books in Seattle contacted me to ask if I would be interested in reviewing a cookbook about eggs, I didn't hesitate. When they offered to allow me to give away a second copy, I knew that you would be just as eager to add Put an Egg on It to your cookbook collection.
This cookbook is beautiful from cover to cover. The photos are stunning and made me want to go immediately to the kitchen to begin whipping up a few sweet and savory dishes starring our fresh eggs. Its pages include step by step instructions for boiling, frying, poaching, and separating eggs before making one of the 70 recipes.
There was only one problem. Molting season has descended upon our farm and eggs are scarce. Suddenly, there are far more feathers in the nest boxes than there are fresh eggs. So, instead of making these recipes right away, I'll be dreaming of which recipe will be the first to try once our girls have replenished their feathers and moved back to leaving beautiful fresh eggs in the nest boxes.
