Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0395909910, Hardcover)The egg is back. Stigmatized in the '70s and '80s for its "artery clogging" high cholesterol content (doctors now agree there's no link between food cholesterol and blood cholesterol levels), and more recently avoided as a potential source of salmonella (simple precautions can obviate danger), the egg has returned triumphant. Celebrating this happy state is Marie Simmons's The Good Egg, a collection of more than 200 easy recipes that showcase the egg in dishes from soup to dessert. Those who love this simple, delicious food will find the book a boon. In chapters such as "Artfully Scrambled and Fried," "Broths," "Stews and Braises," "Pasta and Eggs," and "Cookies, Cakes, Pies, and Tarts," Simmons presents a full range of satisfying egg dishes, many meals in themselves. There are classics, such as spaghetti carbonara, Caesar salad, omelets, and crème brûlée, as well as unfamiliar yet welcome specialties like Creamy Scrambled Eggs with Curry and Cardamom, Eggs Baked on Salmon Hash with Dill and Orange, and Fresh Pasta with Poached Eggs, Toasted Walnuts, and Parmesan. Desserts are well represented, and treats such as Coconut Macaroon Bread Pudding with Dried Cherries and Spiced Sponge Roll with Maple Cream Filling and Walnut Praline should provide enticing meal finales. With instructive sidebars and preparation tips ("Strata Strategies," for example, provides a detailed battle plan for strata success), the book offers an up-to-date and long-overdue exploration of this most versatile food. --Arthur Boehm
