The Fresh Egg Cookbook: From Chicken to Kitchen, Recipes for Using Eggs from Farmers' Markets, Local Farms, and Your Own Backyardby Jennifer Trainer Thompson
Synopses & Reviews
Increasingly available at farmers markets, local farms, gourmet shops, and backyard chicken coops, fresh eggs offer nutritional benefits and delicious flavor. In The Fresh Egg Cookbook, author and chicken keeper Jennifer Trainer Thompson serves up 101 creative recipes for enjoying and celebrating the versatility of eggs.
From the perfect soft-boiled egg to French toast, omelets, eggs Florentine, and huevos rancheros, readers will find a wealth of favorite breakfast offerings with new twists. Farm-fresh eggs also bring out the best in classic preparations such as Caesar salad, spaghetti carbonara, eggnog, and homemade mayonnaise. In recipes ranging from smoothies to casseroles, deviled eggs, and stews, Thompson offers inventive variations for spicing up eggs and combining them with fresh seasonal produce for every meal of the day. She also shares amusing anecdotes about her own chickens and family life with a backyard flock.
Fresh-from-the-chicken eggs are nutritious and delicious, and the possibilities for preparing them are endless. Jennifer Trainer Thompson, a seasoned chicken-keeper, shares the recipes that she and her family rely on when fresh eggs are piling up. Also included are Jennifer's stories, observations, and lessons learned from ten years of raising funny, quirky, beautiful backyard chickens.
