Posh Eggs: Over 70 Recipes for Wonderfully Eggy Things. Recipes by Lucy O'Reilley, photography by Louise Hagger.

Lucy O'Reilly is on a mission to restore a sense of wonder to the humble egg. She explains, "Eggs, so often overlooked or taken for granted, are one of the most beautiful, magical ingredients that nature has ever provided. They are satisfying to hold, their shells smooth and oval. Speckled, freckled, and coloured, we have a choice of hen, quail, duck, goose, ostrich, even gull. Each unique in colour, size, and flavour and cleverly packaged so that the delicate contents are protected within a perfect, porous vessel.

It is what lies within that provides us with a rich, nutritious source of culinary experiment. Often lost, tucked amongst the other ingredients of a Full English breakfast and neglected until the weekend, isn't it about time we brought that box of eggs to the forefront of our cooking staples and celebrated this humble food?"
