Posh Eggs makes the humble egg the star of the show, with 70 recipes that make a meal out of this easy ingredient. From hearty dishes like Mediterranean red pepper eggs with tahini yoghurt, to healthy salads like quail's eggs, beetroot and tarragon, you'll never again be stuck for a quick and original idea for mealtimes.

With a guide to the basics of cooking eggs, plus a photo for every single recipe, this is the ultimate gifty cookbook or self-purchase for egg addicts, expert chefs and novices alike.
