The Egg Award 2013 has become an international community project for the community and by the community,a place to share and exchange through an egg recipe that encourages the use of local eggs.
Its objective is to support and promote our local Egg farmers and producers and to highlight the difference in taste between Fresh,Country,Free Range and Organic eggs sourced directly from the grower as opposed to supermarket eggs.Sourcing local produce and knowing about provenance is important today and it does not cost more,as some might think.
It all started when we got a twitter message from @Croftorganiceggs , inviting us to meet up for coffee and discuss how we could help them sell their eggs in Edinburgh.
Obviously ,we are not a PR company or food supplier,but part of our ethos is about giving something back to the community.,so we agreed to meet,met had a chat about eggs and about their Farm and their ethos as farmers.
We came up with an idea of creating a competition that would encourage people to buy eggs locally,and the Egg Award 2013 was born.
Through twitter, we made contact with our friends and others,and invited them to support and participate,and they all agreed and put forward some ideas to make this happen.
We also invited @Fruitbatwalton to become the Egg Award internet Organizer/ Promoter,something he has done exceptionally ,well because he is a really cool Jack Russell.
So the team for the egg Award 2013 was created,including Top Chefs who submitted cool egg recipes and Food critics.
as well as having the support of various companies and Artists who donated the prizes freely.
This project has now taken flight and it is all due to the freely donated time and effort from people that really care to make this a better place to live and eat.
It is fun and open to anyone who loves cooking,and we are getting entries from all over.It has also opened a space to exchange,promote,have a laugh and talk about eggs.
And it is Free !
