Fresh Eggs Don't Float By Lara DePetrillo and Caroline Eastman-Bridges
Published by Piatkus 20 November 2008 £9.99 Hardback
Are you tired of getting cooking tips from people who can't even remember what it's like to need them?
Celebrity chefs are so used to working in professional kitchens that they often forget how to make their recipes accessible for those of us cooking at home. They can tell you how to bake a better pie ¯ but will they remember to tell you that if you have cheap or old tins, you have to line them with baking paper to get the pie out afterwards? Or that if your shellfish glows in the dark, this means that it is covered in photobacterium and isn't very fresh?
Fresh Eggs Don't Float removes all the intimidation from cooking and offers budding chefs and foodies a light-hearted, smart and funny approach to making delicious food from your own kitchen ¯ without fancy gadgets and over-complicated instructions. It provides superb recipes, amazing facts and invaluable tips.
What started as a novel way of keeping in touch became a new-found passion for the authors. With Lara in the UK and Caroline based in the USA, they decided to cook a new recipe every day for a whole year and share their experiences on their excellent blog www.cookbad.blogspot.com. Fresh Eggs Don't Float is their chance to now share what they have discovered with anyone who wants to make great food at home.
