Eggs by Michel Roux



I get lots of cookbooks out from the library.  But very rarely do I come across one written by a famous chef that is actually beautifully designed, easy to follow and gloriously photographed.

So I can recommend Eggs to you.  The book gives you some basic info on eggs as well as dealing with egg recipes under 13 headings – Boiled, Poached, Fried, Scrambled, Baked, Omelettes, Souffles, Crepes, Pastries & Pasta, Custards, Ice Creams, Meringues and Sauces.

He has done at least 2 other similar books – one on cheeses and one on sauces – I am waiting on them from the library.

Recipes that I am going to try include – Mollet eggs in tomato nests with crunchy cucumber (p28), Crunchy Fried Eggs (p74), Scrambled Eggs (p84), Scrambled Eggs Masala  (p99), Crepes (p154) and Mornay Sauce (p282).

  2. Wow, cookbooks are books I rarely think about reviewing online, so it is wonderful to read a review about a well written cookbook... Especially a cookbook review on a popular dish people consume regularly.
