Beschreibung des Verlags
The symbol of fertility, life and rebirth, muse of artists and philosophers, its solid and liquid form has long inspired chefs and cooks. Found in the kitchens of ancient Egypt, it was also present in Pericles’ Greece and Ancient Rome, where it was used to open banquets. Then, from the medieval period onwards, eggs, in all their many forms, became more and more diffuse making it one of the main ingredients in cooking.
The 40 recipes contained herein range from classics, like hardboiled eggs, to omelettes, crespelle and soufflés. Depending on the ingredients used in conjunction with the egg, the end result can be surprising and have incredibly different flavours: zucchini and potato, mustard and hops, yoghurt and robiola cheese, anchovies and apple. These 40, egg-based recipes all look and taste completely different, thanks in part to cooking techniques which are revealed step by step. Among the most tempting recipes are the ones for Easter Cake -torta pasqualina and Crêpes with dark chocolate and candied orange. A recommendation by the sommelier comes with every recipe.
