"This is a lovely and eminently practical book to have handy on your kitchen shelf, chock-full 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

"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)."--Vicky Lowry, executive editor, ELLE DECOR
