Monday Books: The Egg


There is nothing simpler, yet, more complex than the egg.

The Egg

It’s Monday and as you would expect, we roll out another edition of Monday Books. The Egg. If you’re expecting some late breaking egg news, you will probably be a little disappointed this morning. REAL egg news is hard to come by. Unless, you count the flip flopping back and forth over whether eggs are really bad for your cholesterol or not.

If we were to unveil the definitive answer to the age old question, “which came first…”, that would be HUGE news. Alas, no big reveal today. But, we do have some cookbooks that could help you quench your thirst for egg knowledge.

This post is about giving you a little peek into the vastness of egg resources that are available today. Thank goodness you have me around to help you focus. So, without further ado, here are some selections I have hand picked just for you. Now get cracking.
