How to Boil an Egg is the new collection of recipes from the trend-setting Rose Bakery in Paris. Following Rose Carrarini's critically acclaimed Breakfast, Lunch, Tea (Phaidon Press, 2006), this new cookbook features over 80 original recipies where the egg is the star -- from simple omelets to savory treats, pastries, desserts and more.
How to Boil an Egg features nearly 40 specially-comissioned, full-page, original hand-drawn paintings of the finished dishes by award-winning botanical artist Fiona Strickland. The unique style and attention to detail that Rose Bakery prides itself on is captured in Strickland's illustrations -- which can take days to complete -- making the book as much a treat for the eye as for the taste buds.
Rose Bakery, a small Anglo-French bakery, shop, and restaurant, opened in Paris in 2002, with the aim of serving fresh, simple, and healthy food. Rose's philosophy and approach to food proved extremely popular and there are now branches of Rose Bakery in London, Paris, Tokyo, Seoul, and Tel Aviv.
