A few weeks ago, I received this beautiful little book in the mail and was invited to participate in Terry Golson’s blog tour. I actually already had the original, The Farmstead Egg Cookbook, that was published in 2006 and had made a number of the recipes. I got the book soon after I got chickens. This new book is expanded with two sections, how to raise chickens along with the recipes for how to use all of those eggs.
The Farmstead Egg Guide & Cookbook is an excellent resource whether you’re just starting out with chickens or you’ve had them for awhile, like I have. I think it was a great idea to include, all in one, everything you need to know about keeping chickens along with recipes. I love photos with recipes, and the book includes full-color pictures of many of them. Anyone who has had chickens knows that while waiting for the first egg seems to take forever, once they start laying, suddenly you’re desperate for creative and different ideas to use them. You’ll find a hundred of them in this book! I have a lot of cookbooks, but this is one I’m planning to keep in my kitchen, which means I’m going to use it. And even if you don’t have chickens, the recipes are delicious. (I actually had lost the original book when I moved, so I was happy to get another one!)
