Heston’s Soft Boiled EggMay 4, 2012
With summa this…
And this. Enjoy the Experience? Don’t mind if I do.
Heston’s recipe comes from his new program How to Cook Like Heston, and can be found here (and my my, isn’t Heston looking fit and tanned all of a sudden?) His method is to put the eggs in a pan of cold water, to heat them until boiling point and then take them off the heat and leave for 6 minutes with the lid on. He claims this is appropriate for medium sized eggs, but we were using smaller eggs our neighbour had given us so only left them for 4 minutes.
The cracking. Such a cathartic exercise.
Why am I writing about eggs, you ask? Plain, boiled eggs? It’s partly because I have a crush on Heston Blumenthal (God knows the man doesn’t need any more publicity but he is still so freaking cute with his glasses and his liquid nitrogen), and partly because I suddenly found myself with a craving for eggs. And I, rather narcissistically, wanted to document this partisan supper of mine.
