Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
★ 01/01/2014
In 2006, chicken owner and professional chef Golson published The Farmstead Egg Cookbook to highlight recipes made with local eggs. This revised edition also showcases the joys of owning chickens. In the first part of the book, Golson expertly presents a brief overview of keeping chickens, discussing raising layers and how to handle fresh eggs. The majority of the work is devoted to a bounty of recipes featuring eggs as the main ingredient, ranging from the simplest forms of fried, poached, and shirred eggs to quiches, custards, sauces, and soufflés. Golson includes an instructive and entertaining introduction to each dish, and there are plenty of helpful charts and color photographs. VERDICT Golson provides a full-circle cookbook for those who won't end up caring if the chicken or egg came first. This comprehensive volume is recommended for all collections, especially those with a community interest in urban farming.—Kristi Chadwick, Emily Williston Memorial Lib., Easthampton, MA

    Egg-cellent

    I recently endured three years without eggs because my stomach just couldn't handle them without a serious ache. I am now eating organic, cage-free eggs without any problems - knock on wood, it seems to be a sort of miracle. In this new stage of my life I am looking for new ways to make my egg dishes worth it! and this book is wonderful for inspiration and instruction.




    From this book, I learned that there is a big different between commercially distributed eggs and farm fresh. I also have oodles of delicious recipes to try! Since I have been following the The Art of Cooking Omelettes for my omelets, I first took a stab at mayonnaise because I have heard that fresh is so much better than store bought. With my flavorful organic eggs, its night and DAY!




    If you want to learn more about eggs and find new ways to cook them - this is the book for you! They are the easiest way to incorporate organic protein into your diet without emptying your bank account.
