Take a box of eggs cookbook review and competition

Take a box of eggs is the latest in the Dairy Cookbook series and supported by a collection of recipe videos created by ex-Atomic Kitten and Celebrity Masterchef winner Liz McClarnon and Claridges' Mark Sargeant, Liz and Mark are not directly linked to the book itself other than British Lion's eggs have provided the books as prizes. This is a great recipe cook book - it's ring binding make it easy to flip through and there are little QR barcodes on each to scan with your smartphone for a shopping list! - really handy! Especially for Meal Planning!
The book made me think of new simple meal ideas - such as adding a poached egg to potato cakes and bacon, quiche and omelette ideas to introducing me to completely new foods I haven't heard of like Timbales. Not to mention oodles of cake and cookies and ice creams! Yum!
The introduction pages are really informative, they explain different ways of farming (in a paragraph) what the egg codes mean and what the British lion mark stands for and nutritional value of eggs - all condensed onto two pages.
This book is great from novice (how to boil an egg) to eggsperts (souffl├ęs!).

My two small people like flicking through the pictures (great photos throughout!) and picking what they'd like!
Recipes are broken down into simple steps and some include a "cooks tip" at the bottom too.

Press release:
New research shows time-strapped home cooks are more likely to cook a quick meal from scratch than pop a ready meal in the microwave, so it’s cracking news that two rising culinary stars are launching a new recipe collection of egg-based main meals in minutes! The speedy dishes will feature on a new website - eggrecipes.co.uk/mainmealsinminutes- alongside a series of step-by-step videos presented by Mark and Liz. The celebs give their best omelette-making tips and show just how easy it is to rustle up meals in minutes using eggs.
British Lions eggs have given us an egg based recipe book to give away.
The latest in the Dairy Cookbook series, Take a box of eggs features more than 100 recipes ranging from the basics of boiling, poaching and frying, through everyday staples such as Tortilla and Quiche Lorraine, to the more adventurous Goat’s Cheese Souffl├ęs and Eggs Andalusia, as well as a range of classic desserts including ice creams, trifles and meringues.
by ex-Atomic Kitten and Celebrity Masterchef winner Liz McClarnon and Claridges' Mark Sargeant.

  10. I love bacon fried until crispy in butter, then add a large chopped onion and fry with the bacon until onion is clear and add six eggs and scramble them in the same pan. Add a bit of salt and pepper to taste and just before serving add a handful of fresh chopped parsley. This is great as a lunchtime snack or as part of a breakfast with some fresh sliced tomatoe!

  21. Black forest gateau!
    This uses 5eggs! Separate them, put yolks into a basin with 100g sugar and beat together till thick. Next beat egg whites till stiff. Add 50g cocoa to the egg yolks and sugar and very carefully fold in the egg whites to the mixture.
    Put combined mixture into two greased sandwich tins and cook in oven for 15 mins at 175c.
    When cooled turn out onto rack.
    Whip up double cream and combine with cherries to sandwich the two sponges together.
    Decorate with more cherries and grated chocolate! This is REALLY LUSH !!!! Cruisingsu@live.co.uk
