The Gourmand’s Egg. a Collection of Stories & Recipes


Celebrating the link between the culinary and the cultural, The Gourmand’s Egg. a collection of Stories & Recipes explores the social significance of eggs. From appearing in Egyptian mythology to becoming an icon of religious purity in Piero della Francesca’s Brera Madonna, its symbolism in feminist art and more, the egg is omnipresent. Weaving together art history, photography, recipes and essays, this first volume of TASCHEN’s collaboration with award-winning journal The Gourmand is equal parts delectable and fascinating.
