Since there are a lot of chicken breeds in the world, the author did a great job of breaking down her top 10 favorite breeds. As I scrolled down the list, I was overjoyed to see my favorite breed mentioned — the leghorn. No matter how many people try to put them down because they can be flighty, they are really good little girls and lay nice, big white eggs. Farm-fresh white eggs are just as good as the brown ones.
As I thumbed through this book, there was so much to cluck about. The cookbook was full of beautiful pictures of, you guessed it, chickens.
I can hardly wait to try my first recipe. Long live the chicken; long live the incredible edible egg.
