Inside the Great British Egg Revival


Much like record players, Rubik’s Cubes and Dr. Martens boots, eggs have made something of a comeback in 2017. For the first time since modern records began, sales in the UK topped the six billion mark this year – an increase of 4.8 per cent on the year leading to 18 June. Following the news that the Food Standards Agency (FSA) had relaxed its guidelines about the consumption of raw or soft-cooked eggs in October, these figures should only rise.

So, why have eggs made this Elvis-like return? The answer, according to Rachel Brain, COO at Robert Dyas, lies not only in their versatility – as well as the many ways of cooking them, they can also be used to make pancakes, frittatas, cakes and soufflés – but in their health-giving properties.
