An egg-lovers dream. It's like egg porn. Beautiful photography, typography, design, and of course amazing recipes. It's so clean and uncluttered, it's refreshing just to flip through it. Not an overwhelming 1000 egg recipes, just the best of the best. I want to eat the book. ( )

The egg is the simplest and most complete food, highly nutritious and versatile enough for the quickest of meals or the smartest of dinner parties. It’s also a favorite of pâtissiers and dessert chefs. Michael Roux--for many years a chef at the top of his profession and a global traveler with a passion for different cuisines--is the ideal author to take a new look at one of the oldest foods of all.

Each chapter is based around a style of cooking eggs, from boiling, frying ,poaching, baking and scrambling, to making the perfect omelet, crêpe, soufflé, meringue and custard. Classic recipes such as Hollandaise Sauce, Eggs Benedict and Lemon Soufflé are given a modern twist, while Michel’s original recipes boast new combinations of flavors or a lighter, simpler style of cooking. Illustrated with 150 stunning photographs and designed in a clear, modern, easy-to-follow style, Eggs is set to become a classic.
