As Professor Higgins once said to Col. Pickering - "Why can't the English learn to speak?"
Relating to food - Why can't chefs learn how to poach an egg? Most of the time they're cooked to within an inch of being hard-boiled. It is a rare occurrence when a poached egg is a poached egg.
Without a doubt eggs are the most important food ingredient. So why do chefs ignore the science of poaching an egg? Why I ask, why?
There is no answer except laziness - any cook/chef who can't poach an egg properly, should turn in their toque immediately. There, I've said it.
LEARN TO POACH AN EGG - BEFORE THE EGG COMES BACK AND POACHES YOU!!!
