Insider Info

Use very fresh eggs for poaching. They hold their shape better and form fewer wispy threads in the water.

Do not swirl the water when poaching eggs. This creates a vortex that will ruffle the delicate egg protein. Relatively quiet water that is gently simmering produces the best result.
