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 iowaegg.org: 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.
