Too Many Eggs Cookbook Giveaway

Enter our worldwide giveaway to win a copy of Too Many Eggs: A Collection of Over 800 Egg Recipes and Their Fascinating History by Mimi Smith-Dvorak.

Too Many Eggs is a compendium of all things eggs. It claims to be the most comprehensive book on egg cookery ever written with over 800 egg recipes from all-over-the-world. These recipes highlight and focus on tested and traditional recipes with ingredients that include multiple eggs. It is also filled with the stories and folklore behind the recipes.

This cookbook does not contain food photography that contemporary cookbooks typically contain. Instead it leans into the more classical cookbook aesthetic, featuring beautiful historical woodcuts, illustrations and lithographs.

The collection itself took over a decade of research giving you both a phenomenal cache of recipes and highly entertaining stories for your enjoyment. The book also solves a major dilemma for home cooks and hobbyists who have decided to own chickens. The problem is you end up with too many eggs!

This epic tome is a great addition to any cookbook collection. The author generously provides a free download of the book on her website. Please note, the donate button. If you download the title, please think about sending over a donation to show your appreciation for her years of work on this book. UK and international orders may acquire the book from Waterstones. If you do download the pdf, kindly leave a review on Amazon to show your support.

The Table of Contents here as well as the index. I love the illustrations and how this book is presented. The font is clear and easy to read as are the list of ingredients. The recipe instructions are concise and if you are looking for an egg recipe – trust me, it is here. Lastly, please read the page where the author provides a bio of herself – it is refreshing and most enjoyable.

Pick up a copy of this title and get cracking!

    First let me thank Jenny and Gateview Pub for this great give a way and allowing access to pdf of the book.
    Favorite egg dish is a simple scramble with home cured bacon, fresh tomatoes and fresh sourdough bread. But, I am a baker at heart. Cheesecakes to be precise, and Basque Cheesecakes if you want to get down to the nitty gritty of it!
