Eggs by Michel Roux, Martin Brigdale


Eggs by Michel Roux, Martin Brigdale

There are over 32 million eggs sold and eaten in the UK every day. The egg is the simplest and most complete food - perfect for singles and couples for a cosy evening in, versatile enough for the quickest of meals to the smartest of dinner parties, the favourite of patissiers and dessert chefs. With more than 30 years experience as a chef at the top of his profession Michel Roux has garnered a vast wealth of culinary knowledge and expertise. Trained in the classic French style, but an inveterate global traveller with a passion for different cuisines Michel uses all of his skill and experience to take a new look at one of the oldest foods of all. Destined to become a staple on the bookshelves of everyone who likes to cook and illustrated throughout with stunning photographs by award-winning photographer Martin Brigdale, Eggs contains a compilation of the best 100 egg recipes. Each chapter is arranged around a style of cooking eggs from boiling, frying, poaching, baking and scrambling; how to make the perfect omelette, mousse, souffle and custard. There are classic egg recipes given a modern twist such as Hollandaise Sauce, Eggs Benedict, Lemon Souffle, Creme Caramel and Pavlova with Summer Fruits. There are also new dishes which boast new combinations of flavours or a lighter, simpler style of cooking including Soft Boiled Duck Egg with Asparagus Spears, Poached Egg Caesar Salad and Pistachio Creme Brulee.
