When preparing hard boiled eggs, choose the oldest eggs you have on hand (ideally about a week old). This will make peeling the eggs much easier!
The word “Florentine” means “in the style of Florence,” which is a city in Italy. It’s used to describe dishes that feature spinach, such as Eggs Florentine. The origin of the name dates back to the 1800s when Catherine de Medici, an Italian noblewoman born in Florence, married the king of France and became France’s queen. She reportedly loved spinach so much that she imported spinach seeds from Italy to France and brought in Italian chefs to cook it for her.
