Overview

THE FARMSTEAD EGG COOKBOOK taps into the trend that eggs are healthy to eat again. High-protein, low carb diets have boosted egg sales, and the American Heart Association has relaxed their egg consumption guidelines.

Golson believes strongly in eating organic farmstead eggs — they have a richer flavor, deeper color, and a better texture than the average grocery store egg. She calls them the ultimate comfort food, reassuringly basic but always deliciously special at the same time.

In the FARMSTEAD EGG COOKBOOK she gathers 70 healthy, hip and easy-to-make egg recipes with full color photos throughout. Learn how to properly cook everything from boiled and scrambled eggs to dishes that really celebrate eggs like: smoked trout and peeper frittata, pesto vegetable quiche, Moroccan tangine with meatballs, tomatoes and eggs, almond and orange pound cake with orange glaze, and sweet potato pie with bourbon-meringue topping

Golson (For Goodness’ Sake), a renowned food writer with a degree in animal science and her own flock of chickens, offers an instructive guide to raising hens as well as a delightful collection of egg recipes. Golson starts with a comparison between the various kinds of eggs available, including those inexpensive supermarket varieties and so-called “nutritional” eggs. She covers how to handle and store, freeze, and tell if eggs are fresh. She also offers a useful pro/con chart to help decide if backyard chickens are right for you, dedicating ample pages to the ins and outs of keeping chickens, coop design, noise, and cold weather care. Recipes range from the basics, such as scrambled and fried eggs, to more involved dishes like vegetable fried rice and salmon and egg pan bagnat. Italian egg soup, shirred eggs on polenta, and cheesy egg puffs with greens hash are just a few examples of the inventive and appetizing offers that highlight this tasty collection. Creamy custards include chard and feta strata; basil and mozzarella tian; and savory spinach. Golson also includes wonderful soufflés, both savory and sweet; as well as an appealing array of dessert options, including meringues, tarts, breads, and more. Those planning to raise backyard birds for the first time will find Golson’s wisdom infinitely helpful, and those that simply enjoy good, flavorful food will delight in the diverse and delicious selection of recipes she offers.

Library Journal
Golson, a cooking teacher and author of For Goodness' Sake, among other titles, has a flock of 12 hens--with their own distinct personalities--in her suburban backyard. Her charming little book includes imaginative recipes, both homey and more sophisticated, for egg dishes from Birdie in a Basket to Gremolata Ricotta Frittata to Swordfish Kabobs with A oli. There are larger color photographs of some of the dishes, and smaller ones of the hens. A nice companion to Michel Roux's recent Eggs, a bigger book with more classic French recipes.
