Janice Cole

Chicken and Egg

“Follows Cole’s journey as she bonds with birds, learns about farming in the city and discovers some delicious dishes along the way.” —The Washington Post
Chicken coops have never been so chic! From organic gardens in parking lots to rooftop beekeeping, the appeal of urban homesteading is widespread. Chicken and Egg tells the story of veteran food writer Janice Cole, who, like so many other urbanites, took up the revolutionary hobby of raising chickens at home. From picking out the perfect coop to producing the miracle of the first egg, Cole shares her now-expert insights into the trials, triumphs, and bonds that result when human and hen live in close quarters. With 125 recipes for delicious chicken and egg dishes, poultry lovers, backyard farmers, and those contemplating taking the leap will adore this captivating illustrated memoir!
“It’s an endearing book, but if you don’t find the personal side charming, there are plenty of other reasons to pick it up . . . This book takes small scale chicken-keeping to a deeper level, and adds some new recipes to try out.” —Heavy Table
“Surprising variations on familiar themes . . . Interspersed in Chicken and Egg are the adventures of Cole’s own birds Roxanne, Cleo, and Crazy Lulu, which makes this a charming book as well as a useful one.” —
Chicken and Egg is both surprise and delight . . . Cole shares her journey in a warm and witty style but, because of her strong food background, she adds another layer and, as a cookbook, Chicken and Egg is very strong.” —January Magazine
