In the debut volume of TASCHEN’s series with cult-favourite ‘The Gourmand’ journal, the cultural and culinary history of the egg is celebrated. Poached, scrambled, boiled, whipped into a cocktail, transformed into a painting medium, even tossed at an enemy’s house, the egg is both household staple and source of life. This paradox is explored through a collection of original essays and archetype recipes, illustrated with contemporary photography and historic artworks. 


‘The Gourmand’ is David Lane and Marina Tweed, creators of the eponymous food and culture journal founded in London in 2011. Through publications, films and experiences they explore the fields of art, design, literature, film, fashion, and music through the universal subject of food.
