Fred Smedley's Eggs - How To Cook Eggs: Boiling an Egg; Frying an Egg; Poaching an Egg; How to Make an Omelette; Scrambled Eggs; Bake an Egg; Coddling an Egg - Discover 16 Easy Methods with Proven Results + Top Tips is one of the best basic "how to" guides Grandma has seen in quite some while. Short but quite detailed, Fred gives "eggcellent" instructions for just about every way to cook an egg known to man or woman.

Reader's should note that Mr. Smedley is from the UK, where they size eggs a bit differently than we do in the US. When he talks about "medium" eggs he means the one that are labeled "large" in US grocery stores.

On a side note, Fred mentions that he always adds a dab of vinegar to the water in which he soft-boils eggs as he finds that it prevents the shell from cracking, but he doesn't know why it works. Grandma does know why and finding out is a great little science experiment or a fun trick. Put a raw egg or two or three into a jar with a tight lid. Cover the eggs with white vinegar, put the lid on and stash the jar in the fridge. The vinegar will interact chemically with the calcium that makes the egg shell brittle and draw it out of the shell. After a week or so you will have eggs that you can throw across the room without breaking. Grandma can think of loads of uses for such bouncy eggs . . .

Highly recommended, especially for beginning cooks!

We all eat eggs; they are part of our staple diet. But just because they're always sitting in the fridge staring at us , doesn't mean that that we instinctivly know the best ways to prepare them. Variety is the spice of life, so thanks to this little book I have a bit more choice.

I picked up this book free during an Amazon giveaway. Super-basic instruction in the various ways to cook eggs. Very short ebook; only 202 locations including the introduction and ending statement.

Although I'm a good cook, I was pleased to see a cookbook aimed at the inexperienced cook, and eggs are wonderfully flexible. If you can nuke a couple pieces of bacon, stick bread into your electric toaster, and fry or scramble a couple of eggs, you won't starve and you can even feed unexpected company. But these, sadly, aren't quite basic enough. Smedley starts with soft-boiled eggs and is quite explicit as to how long the eggs should cook or stand, but he seems to have gotten tired when he got to hard-boiled aggs as he starts giving ranges and adding "The exact time will depend on how hard-boiled you prefer your eggs to be." Well, duh, but how is the novice cook to know where in that range his preferred hardness will fall? Smedley's instructions for frying eggs start: "I use butter but you can of course use oil or margarine or whatever you prefer." Experienced cooks realize he is talking about some kind of shortening to keep the egg from sticking to the pan, but the inexperienced cook may decide "I like Worcestershire sauce or hot sauce on my eggs, so I'll use that." The results would not be good. Then Smedley instructs: "Crack an egg onto a plate ensuring that the yolk does not break." How? Even experienced cooks have trouble with this, and Smedley gives the novice no help. He also ignores flipping the egg (does he think sunny side up is the only method people like?) or just what "spooning" butter over the egg is. The same shortcomings appear for poaching eggs (no cooking times or ways to tell when the egg is done).

I knew nothing about poached eggs and I was satisfied with the information that I was given. I also knew nothing about coddling eggs. I like the fact that this book was to to the simple.

Was hoping for something different then the same egg books you see out there (there are hundreds) could have thrown a few recipes in to match the cooking method

I loved this book and how the information was presented. I am not a very good cook and I fear I may remain a beginner forever, for lack of time to focus sufficiently, and this book gave me very quick, easy to look up reminders about how to do the basics with eggs. It is exactly what it was purported to be, and well written, too.
