World Egg Day - October 9, 2009

Park Ridge, Ill (Oct. 7, 2009) – If you watched the 2009 season of “The Next Food Network Star” you know that Jeffrey Saad’s “cooking without borders” style combines flavorful and unexpected ingredients into simple, delicious dishes in no time. Now, along with the celebration of World Egg Day on Oct. 9, America’s egg farmers are pleased to announce that Jeffrey will bring that same global and charismatic style as a spokesperson for the incredible edible egg.


As a “Food Network” contestant, Jeffrey’s easygoing personality and easy-to-follow cooking style reflected the attitude of many of today’s home cooks, who want to provide diverse, tasty, and nutritious meals to their families yet demand simple recipes, affordable and easily available ingredients, and a no-fuss approach.


“If any one food can be said to play a major role in virtually every cuisine around the world, it’s the egg,” says Jeffrey, who trained formally at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY. “Eggs are an ideal fit with today’s contemporary and casual style of cooking, not to mention affordable and nutritious, so I’m especially excited to join America’s egg farmers to talk about how people can benefit from enjoying them in their diet.”


World Egg Day and Jeffrey Saad – A Perfect Fit

Jeffrey’s introduction on World Egg Day as an incredible edible egg spokesperson speaks to America’s egg farmers’ belief in the growing, global interest in eggs. He has teamed up with the much-beloved World’s Fastest Omelet Maker, Howard Helmer, who has demonstrated how to cook eggs on “Oprah,” “Good Morning America,” and in The New York Times, among hundreds of other outlets. Along with Howard, Jeffrey will bring his own style and personality.



In celebration of World Egg Day and the events scheduled to take place in more than 150 countries around the world, Jeffrey and Howard are also contributing to the Good Egg Project, an initiative by America’s egg farmers to educate people about where eggs come from and to encourage them to eat good and do good everyday. They’re asking egg fans everywhere to take the pledge to “Eat good. Do good everyday.” at For every pledge made, America’s egg farmers will donate one egg – up to a million eggs – to Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger relief organization. That’s in addition to the more than 12 million eggs America’s egg farmers donate annually! Be one of the first 20,000 to pledge and receive a downloadable “Buy One Get One Free” coupon for a dozen eggs from America’s egg farmers.
