Part cookery, part craft projects and home uses, The Egg Book is a practical, quirky and fun encyclopaedia of eggs. On its own with buttery soldiers or boiled and halved in a creamy fish pie, the secret of a soft, gooey custard tart and the perfectly risen souffle, the egg is the most simple and versatile ingredient. This quirky book is more than just delicious recipes and definitive egg cooking techniques; it's a practical home guide full of handy household and garden tips, easy health and beauty remedies, home craft, games, science and trivia -- all of which celebrate the resourceful egg. Find 501 things to craft and make with this most basic but ingenious object, from pretty pistachio macaroons and smoked salmon and watercress tarts to lime shampoo, a feather fascinator, natural garden fertilizer, an eggnog gift basket and many more inspired ideas for you to try at home. Half the book offers original recipes, including the perfect techniques for poaching, frying, scrambling and boiling as well as ideas for using leftover yolks and whites; the other half focuses on the multiple and various things you can do with an egg outside of the kitchen, such as craft, household and garden uses, science eggsperiments, nature and the outdoors, chicken keeping and trivia. Full of brightly coloured, whimsical illustrations and entertaining ideas, The Egg Book is the perfect gift, ideal for those who enjoy cooking and home craft.
