‘The Perfect Egg: A Fresh Take on Recipes for Morning, Noon, and Night’ by Teri Lyn Fisher and Jenny Park

'The Perfect Egg: A Fresh Take on Recipes for Morning, Noon, and Night' by Teri Lyn Fisher and Jenny Park

I am a long-time fan of Jenny Park and Teri Lyn Fisher’s blog ‘Spoon Fork Bacon’, and thus, was immediately interested to read their new egg-themed cookbook. I love the simple beauty of their recipe choices, how they lovingly present the ingredients to their blog (and now book) readers, and how the recipes are diverse enough for the beginner or expert chef. I was so excited to see this new cookbook available here on Blogging for Books and, once I had the hard-covered volume in my hands, I was glad to discover I was not disappointed.

I went through the cookbook and flagged some of the recipes I was most interested to try – or, more correctly, would talk my husband into preparing for me. My top five (5) are:

♦    Egg Clouds (pages 38-39)
♦   Quiche (pages 44-45)
♦   Tea Eggs (pages 70-71)
♦   Avgolemono Soup – described by the ladies as a lemon-scented egg drop soup (pages 92-93)
♦   Poached Yolk-Stuffed Ravioli (pages 114-115)

There were, of course, many other recipes of interest – varietal deviled eggs and egg salads, as well as hollandaise sauce and other like egg-based sauces – but these five are the ones highest on my INTERN (I need to eat right now) List. While I could handle preparing the simple Tea Eggs on my own, I would probably leave the much more difficult Poached Yolk-Stuffed Ravioli preparations to my more experienced husband.
