IEC newsletter - what we've been doing, and what's coming up.
Here we show the light, spongelike texture of a chiffon cake where egg whites are folded ever-so-gently into a cake batter.

New video series:
Get Cooking with Eggs

One of the easiest ways to pick up a cooking skill is to watch an instructional step-by-step video. It’s true, especially for cooks who haven't been lucky enough to grow up with Grandma in the kitchen, where even the simplest things like how to separate an egg were lovingly explained. We often hear questions like, "What’s an easy way to peel a hard-boiled egg?" or "How can I tell if a quiche is done?" Even cooks who are familiar with some of the common egg techniques are curious to know why they are important.
In July the Iowa Egg Council started a “Get Cooking with Eggs” video series, that includes recipes, tips and how-to instruction for cooking with eggs. "Our goal is to create clear, concise, easy-to-follow instructions as well as inspire our audience to serve eggs in a variety of ways," says Lois White, Director of Consumer Affairs.
Check out the Iowa Egg Council’s newest videos at How to Make Angel Hair Quiche Pie, How to Scramble Eggs, How to Hard-Boil Eggs and Ask the Eggs-pert.
Coming in December are step-by-step videos for making Crab Deviled Eggs and Mini Maple Crème Brulee. Cooks will also find videos showing basic techniques for baking with eggs—adding eggs to a creamed mixture, whipping egg whites and folding beaten egg whites into a cake batter.

2012 Komen Race for the Cure

The Iowa Egg Council recently teamed up with Cookies (the makers of award-winning sauces and seasonings) to fix egg burritos for nearly 1,000 cancer survivors and supporters during the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. The race was held in downtown Des Moines on October 27 near the state capitol with about 20,000 registered participants. Speed Herrig and the Cookies crew fired up the grills at 4:30 a.m. to cook the eggs. Iowa Egg Council egg promotion specialists and volunteers formed assembly lines to fold and wrap the burritos. Breakfast was ready at 9:00 sharp!
