I must say, I was really excited to pull this cookbook off my shelf - The Farmstead Egg Cookbook by Terry Golson.Small in stature at only 124 pages and 7x6 inches, this book is however, big on recipes - all having to do with eggs. From how to cook a hard-boiled egg to making challah to Avgolemono soup.
I purchased this cookbook about 3 years ago from Amazon. It was a "bargain book" and cost me under $5. I recently looked up the book and the price starts at $65! WOW!
I chose one of my favorite pasta dishes ever - Spaghetti alla Carbonara.
I have eaten spaghetti alla carbonara in different regions in Italy and each region's recipe was as different as the people from the region.I didn't have pancetta so I used bacon.And, I didn't have basil. Here is the final product.How tasty does this look?
It was delicious but I needed to hit it with some extra virgin olive oil when I plated the dish because it was a bit dry.
I can't wait to try more recipes from this cookbook. I think Ms. Golson did an awesome job!
