Publisher Comments:

Good cooks have always known that when you have an egg, you can make a perfect meal at a moment's notice. Now nutritionists are confirming what our mothers told us: the egg is good food. In this landmark collection, Marie Simmons, an award-winning cookbook author whose deftly irresistible flavor combinations have inspired millions, celebrates the versatile egg with more than 250 recipes.

This is the most comprehensive book on egg cookery ever published, and it's a dazzlingly diverse collection. It encompasses sophisticated dinners — Gnocchi with Butter and Herbs, for instance — as well as such superb desserts as Fallen Chocolate Souffland#233; Cake. And it's filled with tips and techniques for the basics: how to scramble, fry, bake, poach and hard-cook eggs. In these pages can be found convenient appetizers, comforting soups, flavorful sandwiches, innovative salads, sauces, souffland#233;s, cookies, cakes, pies and tarts.

Simmons provides us with literally hundreds of dinner possibilities, many of them vegetarian. She reinterprets such classics as quiches, adding broccoli and provolone or caramelized tomato and corn, and rediscovers dishes from the past, including the savory bread puddings called strata. She takes pasta far beyond red sauce with renditions that include eggs, fresh vegetables and herbs, and she serves up exciting main-dish salads for warm weather and, for wintry months, hearty Greek lamb stew with artichokes, thickened with egg-lemon sauce.

And yes, there are scores of recipes for breakfast and brunches, ranging from Eggs Scrambled with Wild Mushrooms and Fresh Herbs to Eggs Baked in Fresh Tomato Salsa with Melted Cheese, not to mention French toast, Popover Pancakes, and more than thirty different omelettes and frittatas — meals for any occasion.

For dessert, choose between seductively light selections such as Hazelnut Meringue Cookies and Lemon Angel Food and rich creations like Classic Crcme Caramel, Lemon Curd Tart with Berries, and Spiced Sponge Roll with Maple Cream Filling and Walnut Praline.

With egg information and intriguing snippets of lore throughout, THE GOOD EGG is the ultimate cookbook for a new generation of cooks.

Review:

"Simmons, a James Beard Award — winning cooking teacher and former Bon Appetit columnist, describes herself as 'mostly vegetarian.' In her newest book (after Things Cooks Love) she presents more than 150 meat-free recipes (including many vegan entries), from soups and salads to main dishes and sides. Each features a suggestion for how to make a meal that includes the dish — for example, with curried quinoa and apple salad with dried cranberries, she suggests serving her red lentil soup with coconut milk and toasted cumin. Recipes do live up to the book's title: they feature fresh ingredients and they can be made quickly, generally in 30 to 45 minutes. And while they aren't exactly groundbreaking, the recipes — such as double-corn and jalapeno polenta gratin; roasted sweet potatoes topped with black bean chili, and a chickpea spread made with pomegranate molasses — are definitely appealing, and a notch or two more interesting and sophisticated than standard vegetarian fare. She doesn't fill space with dessert recipes, but instead focuses on savory foods that would work well for reasonably quick weeknight dinners, making this a practical resource for those who want to add more easy meatless options to their repertoire.
