I just love deviled eggs and finding a whole book on the subject certainly sparked my interest! I never thought there could be so much said on eggs. From how to cook the perfect eggs, to the differences between eggs, it can all be found here. The book also has beautiful pictures with each eggs recipe. The book isn't vegetarian, but certainly there are enough recipes that vegetarians can make. Of course a book about eggs is not suitable for vegans. The recipes are original and I certainly have a few recipes on my to try list from this book. For example the Green Goddess eggs with avocado and the California Roll eggs. The eggs I tried were the Boursin and garlic with herb salad deviled eggs, which I will share below. I thought it was a really fun book, and a nice addition to a cookbook collection.

Okay, so on to the recipe!
Boursin & Garlic Deviled Eggs with Herb Salad: (makes 24)
- 12 hard boiled eggs
- 1 package boursin herb & garlic cheese
- 2 tbsp mayonnaise
- 1/2 tsp fresh garlic
- a pinch of salt
- a selection of fresh herbs. I used chives, basil and parsley. Italian herbs is also an option.
Half the eggs lengthwise and transfer the yolks into a mixing bowl. Set the egg halves on a plate, cover and put in the fridge. I found this really helps with filing them later, such a nifty tip! Mash the yolks with a fork, add cheese, mayonnaise, salt and garlic and stir until smooth. I also added some of the chopped fresh herbs at this point.
Spoon the mixture into a pastry bag with a plain or large star tip. I used the star. Pipe the egg halves with the mixture and sprinkle some herbs on top.
