From the Publisher"Lara Ferroni's cookbooks confirm my belief that great things come in small packages. This is a tight collection of well-thought out, clear, concise and easy to follow recipes for exactly the egg dish you were craving—no fluff, no filler—and a number of ways to use eggs (savory and sweet) you'd never thought about, but will be enticed to try through the photos. As with her previous books, I know I will share this with friends, gift it, and most importantly thoroughly use it."

"That Lara has chosen one of nature's miracle foods to focus on doesn't surprise me: Her egg-cellent paean to the incredible edible egg is a comprehensive yet concise curating of decadent recipes starring the golden orb, coupled with her signature gorgeous photography, each one of which is worthy of plastering on posters and screen savers. Starting with doughnuts and now with eggs, Lara is pointing her talented lens on the most delicious foods life has to offer."

"Put an Egg on It: 70 Delicious Dishes that Deserve a Sunny Topping takes eggs in surprising and enticing directions. The book spans food cultures, with recipes like Kimchi Fried Rice, Fried Egg Tacos, and Japanese Abura Soba, and dabbles with sweet and cocktail preparations as well. For backyard chicken raisers and egg-lovers of all types, this one is for you."
"The book starts out with some basic introductory stuff - how to fry, scramble and pickle eggs for example - but quickly dives into some of the most mouth-watering, unique egg recipes I have ever seen. The photography is just beautiful, making this so much more than 'just' a cookbook... I can see this cookbook fast becoming my go-to reference when we have an abundance of eggs - which around here is pretty much all the time! I highly recommend this cookbook."

"In Put an Egg on It, local cookbook author Lara Ferroni takes the humble egg to the next level."
"[Put an Egg on It is] full of recipes; breakfasts, lunches, appies, dinners, desserts, and cocktails. And they all sound darned tempting…but also? They LOOK darned tempting. I am a sucker for gorgeous photography, and I was in such heaven perusing this collection. Lara Ferroni is a food photographer and writer by trade (check out laraferroni.com for her impressive resume), and her love of food just bursts from every happy page of this cookbook."
"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."
"[Lara Ferroni] puts out gorgeous books that show beautiful, unfussy foods that are easy to imagine on your own dinner table at home. You're not spending days preparing a single recipe. These are books to inspire you to get back into the kitchen and convince reluctant cooks that meals at home can be as satisfying as the food being prepared. Put an Egg On It is a great book for people who don't have a lot of time to cook — the recipes are simple and because they focus on the almighty egg, you can't have too many ingredients to worry about, otherwise the egg gets lost in the mix."
"Now this is an inspiring cookbook. Got eggs? Lara Ferroni has seventy suggestions for where to put your eggs, and she's covered those in her cookbook Put An Egg On It. ...So, whether you have laying hens, a great CSA, a favorite farmers market, or just no idea what to do with your market eggs, you will want to see all the new and creative ideas Lara Ferroni is sharing in her eggceptional cookbook."
"Instantly, I fell in love with the photography and author, Lara Ferroni. She is after my heart! Finally, here's a gal who appreciates eggs and all their glory as much as I do. This cookbook is filled with a beautiful "how-to" section in the beginning. Everything that you wanted to know about cooking eggs is covered. Next, it's onto seventy delicious egg recipes! There are traditional eggs to even creative ones like eggs on hot dogs. I must also add that there are many recipes that call for less than ten ingredients. I love that! Lara makes cooking eggs appear easy, approachable, and for any level cook."
"Her recipes are exciting because she’s taken a different approach on cooking eggs. Instead of creating a dish in which eggs are an afterthought, she has created dishes in which eggs are an integral ingredient. It’s not just that you add an egg to a sauce, you create the shakshuka (Israeli eggs in peppers and tomatoes) sauce and then gently include the eggs which are as important as the tahini that is drizzled over the top... Each of the recipes are also introduced by a short story or bit of advice which makes this a book as lovely to look at as it is to read... Put an Egg on It is a sophisticated and unique approach to viewing eggs as more than just something that sits scrambled alongside bacon. Put an Egg on It is a good one which belongs in any egg lover’s cookbook collection."
—Lessons Learned from the Flock
"We're strong supporters of the 'put an egg on it' theory that many dishes can be improved with the addition of a good old-fashioned sunny side-up. But Lara Ferroni's new book takes it a step further, as in, you'll never have to think what to put an egg on again. Her recipes are tailored to feature this ingredient at its finest."
"Ferroni has assembled a series of thoughtful recipes that are complimented by the addition of the egg, making it the star and not merely an afterthought."
