This year World Egg Day falls on Friday 9th October and we've hatched a plan to celebrate.
World Egg Day is a great opportunity for Australians to be reminded about the nutritious, delicious, affordable, and sustainable staple that is the humble egg.
Eggs have inspired some eggs-ceptional savoury and sweet dishes right across the globe and so we'll be celebrating the joy of eggs from around the world by sharing creative ways eggs can be worked into every meal.
Each year, as part of World Egg Day, the Eggsellence Awards are held to celebrate the diversity and quality of the egg dishes in Australia’s food scene.
But this year, a year unlike any other, more Australians are eating at home than ever before. So in collaboration with acclaimed cook Adam Liaw, we've put together a dozen egg recipes inspired from every corner of the world, and we're asking you to help us crown Australia's favourite (and have a go at cooking these egg-citing dishes at home!).
On this page you’ll find all of the recipes plus recipe videos with plenty of tips on how you can cook them at home, along with a link to cast your vote.
Happy World Egg Day!
