Have you tried to prepare an egg poached? I have tried once but it wasn’t good. The egg white was cooked, including the yolk. To make it perfect, the egg white must be cooked but the yolk should be runny. I followed the instructions but it didn’t come out like the photo on the recipe book. I understand that this is a difficult yet elegant way to prepare eggs, but gets easier with practice. Hmm.. That’s it; I need more practice on making an excellent poached egg.

Anyway, here the instructions: Fill a pan with water and add vinegar. (1 tablespoon vinegar to 6 cups of water); the acid helps contain the egg whites. Bring to boil, then lower to a simmer (boiling water will make the egg white rubbery). Crack the egg into a small bowl. When water is ready, some people swirl the water with a spatula or wooden spoon to create a vortex, while others, do not, simply using circular molds. Try both ways and see what works for you. Drop the egg into the swirling water or into the mold. If using the vortex technique, continue swirling the water slowly to keep the egg in shape. The vortex creates a spherical shape, while mold makes a sunny-side up shaped egg. Cook for about 3 minutes and remove with a slotted spoon.

Good luck and enjoy cooking! :)
