Lost egg recipes

I once read–of course I don’t remember where–that eggs vary enough by season that there used to be recipes that made the most of those differences. Although much has been written lately about the joys of fresh, local eggs, I have yet to find any of those seasonal egg recipes.

The introduction also mentions that Grimod de la Reynière once recorded 685 ways to serve eggs. Looks like the 641.5944 section is my next stop at the San Francisco Public Library.
