NETTY’S FLUFFY EGGS

And so it happened that we discovered the tastiest, fluffy egg recipe in a long time in of all places, Fort Worth, Indiana. Let’s start at the beginning. We recently spent some days with my sister-in-law and her husband, Don, in the Midwest.… Read more...

Apple and Date Omelet

Shakshuka

Shakshuka which translates as “mixture” in Egyptian Arabic, is a dish very common in the Middle East. It’s simply a mess of eggs poached in tomatoes, greens, bell peppers and onions. What I like about this flavorsome dish is that it’s traditionally prepared in a cast-iron pan.… Read more...

Greek Omelet

I will scarf up anything with eggs in it. I love the suckers: boiled, par-boiled, fried, scrambled, sunny-side up, you name it. One of the favorite is a Greek omelet. Actually, it’s more of a souffled omelet (or omelette). In this case, filled with spinach.… Read more...

Eggah – Arabic Egg Cake

Most authorities regard eggah as a dish in Arab cuisine that is similar to an omelet or frittata. Some would say it’s like a tortilla. I would say it’s more like an egg cake.  In fact, eggah is nothing like an omelet (or omelette).… Read more...

Stuffed Eggs Seville Style

When I was growing up, one of the favorite dishes we had in the family was stuffed eggs (think of deviled eggs). But our method was called stuffed eggs “Seville style.” My Uncle Phillip, of late memory, swore that this was the way they prepared eggs in Seville.… Read more...

Martino Rossi, nee Martino da Como, nee Martino de Rubeis, nee Giovanni Rosselli, was also known as Maestro Martino (Martino the master), presumably because of his cooking prowess as shown in  his four manuscripts known as Libro de Arte Coquinaria.… Read more...
