Wine, Eggs and some incredible food bloggers!

October 5, 2010

I had the pleasure of seeing the Good Egg Project in action last week at the Willamette Egg Farms food blogger tour in Oregon. As part of the Good Egg Project, Greg and Gordon Satrum – second and third generation egg farmers – brought food bloggers from across the nation to Willamette Egg Farms to see what modern egg farming looks like and to cook some quick and easy egg recipes with Howard Helmer and myself.

The whole event began with a delicious wine tasting (Willamette is known for Burgundy style Pinot Noir and luscious Pinot Gris) and vineyard tour at Domaine Margelle Winery. The next day, while bloggers were learning about the egg production process from hen to home, Howard and I did a few cooking demonstrations on Good Day Oregon with incredible weatherman and entertainer Andy Carson. Finally, that afternoon, we showed bloggers a few quick egg cooking tips and techniques, along with a some time-saving breakfast recipes.

These amazing food bloggers are moms, community anchors and incredibly passionate food people and cooks.They do it all! Check out their blogs to see what they’re saying about the farm and pick up a recipe or two that they’ve perfected!

You can be part of the Good Egg Project too! Feed the hungry by making a pledge (no cost) to eat good. Do good every day. America’s egg farmers are donating up to one million eggs to feed the hungry.

Eat well, Enjoy life, Be happy!

    Jeffrey! So much fun getting to know you at the Egg Farm tour. You and Howard are great fun and I learned a lot about how to cook eggs. I’ve been practicing on my family; they might be getting tired of eggs (is that possible?!). Cheers!

    Hi Jeffrey! The trip was so much fun, thanks for sharing all of your great tips and techniques. My family is thrilled with my new, much fluffier scrambled egg-making method. You and Howard are starring in many of my webisodes this month! (Also, is it just me or was the Oregon weather man, in fact, Billy Idol’s little brother?) The food trucks in Portland were awesome – definitely worth a UTofA episode!!

    It was a great trip and I learned so much about eggs. Thank you for all your tips on cooking eggs. I have made scrambled eggs for my family several times since I got back and they love my new way of cooking them. It was great to meet you!
