"My friend Lara Hamilton, who owns Book Larder, a cookbook shop in Seattle, first turned me onto the idea of cooking eggs in cream when she told me about a recipe for cream-fried eggs in Lisa Steele’s cookbook. In it, you heat heavy cream in a skillet until bubbling, slip a few cracked eggs on top of the cream, then cook it all until the cream breaks and caramelizes. You wind up with fried eggs that have liquid yolks, cream-coated whites, crispy edges and the rich aroma of brown butter."  - J. Kenji Lopez-Alt via The New York Times

" If anyone were going to convince me to buy some chickens, build a roost and start gathering fresh eggs from my backyard, it would be Lisa."  - Damaris Phillips, Chef, Food Network TV host and author of Southern Girl Meets Vegetarian Boy
