“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!”

“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).”
