Our weekly dining chat will take place Thursday, Aug. 26, at 3 p.m. Note that it has been moved from its usual Wednesday spot, but it's just for this week. Next week, we'll be back on Wednesdays at 11 a.m.

This has been a week of ovophobia. Jenn Abelson reports that some local restaurants are changing suppliers and putting the kibosh on runny eggs, while Allandale Farm has seen a run on its eggs. Has the recall made you change the way you cook, consume, or shop for eggs?

And according to the Washington Post, "192 large egg companies own about 95 percent of laying hens in this country, down from 2,500 in 1987, according to United Egg Producers, an industry group. Most of those producers are concentrated in five states: Iowa, Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania and California." Do these numbers startle you, or is it about what you expected?

We'll talk about that, favorite watering holes (add the Gallows to my list), and more.

The Recipe Box Project:

If you want to contribute a recipe to The Recipe Box Project, please write it below. Also tell us where you got it (package box, cookbook, mom, friend -- include the name). We're looking for the kinds of dishes that people grew up on, that were served at family suppers, that tell a story, that are typically New England, or that you brought with you from a far away place to New England. We will print one of the recipes in the Food section once a month. To ask any questions, write to Debra Samuels, who is overseeing this project, at To discuss your recipes, click here.
