There are large goose eggs, duck eggs, grade A extra-large eggs; each one with a rich and colorful coat that celebrates the season.

Thomas Martin Cunningham, who spent nearly 60 years delivering eggs to homes and neighborhood stores throughout Baltimore and Baltimore County, died of a heart attack Monday at his Towson residence. He was 71. Family members said that Mr. Cunningham had been delivering eggs since the age of 12. He died in the early afternoon after completing his usual morning circuit selling eggs. Born in Baltimore and raised in the Hamilton and Baynesville neighborhoods, Mr. Cunningham started selling eggs when his father, a milkman who also had an egg business, died of leukemia at 41, leaving a wife and seven children.

"Look at all of these," she cried, snatching up the plastic eggs containing candy and prizes.

I have always been amazed by the delectable ways the French have for preparing eggs. Last month, while in Paris, I ordered an oeuf en cocotte au crabe and l'estragon - which translates as an egg baked in a dish with crab and tarragon. After my first bite, I was in heaven. All I could think of while savoring this creation was that this recipe would be ideal to serve for brunch or for a special breakfast when we have overnight guests. It was simple, yet sophisticated, and didn't take long to assemble or bake.

At this time of year, back in the old days, the Easter cry sailed through the alleys of Baltimore."Who's got an egg?Who's got an egg?Chicken with a wooden leg!Who's got a guinea-ghi?Who's gonna pick-a-me?"The challenge was one of a basket full of Easter traditions peculiar to Baltimore, rituals that included parades, butter shaped like lambs, and Easter Monday picnics in Druid Hill Park; customs that have faded with time.The cry of "Who's got an egg?" would bring youngsters out of their homes, ready to do battle with hard-boiled eggs dyed in shades of blue and pink and yellow.

If it takes a tough man to make a tender chicken, who could possibly be up to this task: making a $2,500 jeweled evening bag out of an ostrich egg? The tough guy's chick, that's who. While describing some of Nancy Grasmick's fancy-schmancy knickknacks the other day, I mentioned that Frank Perdue's widow makes "faux Faberge eggs," one of which sits in the state school superintendent's living room. Fowl! cried Mitzi Perdue, all the way from Paris, where she was visiting friends. "No, no, no, my goodness, no!"

When eggs start appearing in their coats of many colors, and children begin parading home from school with their dainty, grass-filled baskets, we don't have to look at our calendars to know that it's Easter once again. For eggs are a symbol of Easter; it wouldn't feel quite like Easter if there weren't any brightly colored eggs about it.The association of Easter with eggs is one we take for granted nowadays, but the connection has intrigued many folklorists. What is it about the egg that makes it such an ideal symbol of this particular holiday?

Q: I have read that eggs scramble better at room temperature. Isn't it dangerous to let them sit out to bring them to that temperature?A: It is dangerous to let eggs sit out for long periods of time at room temperature, so a quick trick is to sit the egg, in its shell in lukewarm water for a few minutes.Q: I have recently seen many new types of mushrooms available in my supermarket's produce department. How can I prepare them to see if I will like them?A: The best way to bring out the full flavors of individual mushrooms is to saute them quickly in a little olive oil or butter and, if not doing simply a mushroom tasting, you might use them to top something bland such as a sauteed chicken breast.
