Eggland’s Best Blogger Dinner

Last night, I enjoyed a special blogger dinner hosted by Mary Kate from Kitchenbelle.com and Eggland’s Best. It was a wonderful opportunity to meet and interact with fellow Boston-area bloggers and taste delicious (and nutritious) food made with Eggland’s Best eggs.

The event was held at Stella in the heart of the South End.

Everyone received a gift bag full of goodies from Kitchenbelle and Eggland’s Best. There was tons of good stuff inside! I’m most excited about the Kitchen Sink Cookie, which I am saving for Cookie Friday! 😉

Before dinner, the folks from Eggland’s Best welcomed us and briefly talked about what gives EB eggs their great taste and better nutrition. If you want to learn more about EB eggs, here’s some great info about the brand and their eggs:

Then, it was time to dig in! The theme of the evening was Breakfast for Dinner.

Dinner was a 3-course meal with lots of egg-inspired dishes.

ENTREE

Linguini “Carbonara” with poached egg, smoke bacon, and Parmesan & Duck Omelet with duck confit, crumbled goat cheese, mushrooms, and baby spinach

Duck sort of bugs me out, so I ate around it in the omelet. The Linguini “Carbonara” was delicious (and duck-free), so I chowed it right down!

French Toast with warm Vermont maple syrup

LOVED THIS! :mrgreen:

DESSERT

Chocolate Torte with vanilla gelato and chocolate sauce

Chocolate Torte is always a yummy dessert, but I was pretty full, so I only ate about half of it.

Before I left the event, I made sure to snap a photo with my email buddy, Lainie, from EB. It was great to finally meet her in person! :mrgreen:

  1. I love Egglands Best eggs. Thanks for sharing this event with us! Those little “stuffed” Egglands Best eggs on the table are adorable, do you know if they sell them?

  2. you don’t like duck?!! omg, it’s one of my favorite things in the world. it’s so flavorful, i love it. it is nothing like chicken or turkey, so don’t compare it but do give it a try some time at a restaurant that knows what it’s doing. definitely worth it.
