What People are Saying About This

Roy Blount Jr.

"A good fresh tribute to good fresh eggs."

Elizabeth Kolbert

"A delightful introduction to the pleasures of backyard chickens. The Fresh Egg Cookbook is filled with helpful information for those who want to start their own flock and great-looking recipes for those who already have."
Elizabeth Kolbert, author of Field Notes from a Catastrophe

Deborah Madison

“Made with a true egg, even the friendliest fried-egg-over-easy is once again sublime. And now that people are starting to experience the difference between the real thing and the pallid supermarket version, it’s a good time to revisit all those wonderful egg dishes (and some new ones) that may have been forgotten but are worth reviving. Personally, I can’t wait to make Jennifer Thompson’s popovers!”
Deborah Madison, Author of Local Flavors, Cooking and Eating from American’s Farmers’ Markets, and Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone.

Danny Meyer

“This is a lovely and eminently practical book to have handy on your kitchen shelf - chockful of sensible and delicious ways to put fresh eggs to good use. But beware: once you've tasted a fresh egg, there's no going back. If you've ever even considered keeping your own chickens, The Fresh Egg Cookbook just might be the catalyst for the buying the coop!”
Danny Meyer, Co-Author of The Union Square Cafe Cookbook

Vicky Lowry

“Sculptural, earthy, and oh-so versatile, fresh eggs have captured the imagination of Jennifer Trainer Thompson, who has written a timely and entertaining egg-centric cookbook. She offers practical information about raising chickens (easy!), and her mouthwatering recipes range from the simple (classic egg salad sandwich) to the sublime (soufflé glacé au citron).”
