Eggs might be considered a “humble kitchen staple,” but as Dakota points out in Eggstravaganza, there are countless intriguing ways to make eggs a sensational delight for any meal. From the basics of scrambled eggs, over-easy eggs, and omelets to eggs à la Suisse and egg and mushroom breakfast hash, there are so many possibilities with a simple egg. As Dakota points out, cooking with eggs can take you on a culinary journey around the world. All you need is a little imagination and a large carton of eggs.
Dakota’s cookbook, Eggstravaganza: 114 Effortless Egg Recipes, is more than just a cookbook. It’s an egg-inspired journey that will open your mind to the endless possibilities of this delightful and often overlooked staple. Following a simple introduction, the author leads readers through the egg-citing journey, beginning with the simplest, most basic egg dishes, the ones we all know best, like scrambled eggs. Each recipe is laid out clearly, beginning with a statement on the egg dish, followed by a list of ingredients and detailed preparation instructions. The more complex recipes are thoroughly detailed in their preparation outlines. Some of the recipes include suggestions of when and how to serve the dish. Whilst so many of the recipes are familiar, I was intrigued by some of the more ethnic recipes, like the recipe for Eggplant and Egg Curry (eggplant, of course, being a fruit that just happens to share the ‘egg’ name). This is a great addition to any cook's collection and will certainly inspire many to explore the seemingly endless possibilities of the simple egg.
