It's pretty easy to poach an egg well, at home at least. There are several options shown on the perfect poached egg site, and a whiz-bang video on how to get the shape right on the lifehacker site.
Maybe I'll just stop ordering eggy dishes. It would be great if you could specify how you wanted your eggs cooked, as you would a steak ... 'rare, medium or well done, madam?' Maybe you can do this. I'll have to give it a try. Feedback and suggestions welcome.
Today's brekkie at a Canberra cafe that will remain
nameless. Looks lovely, right? But when I cut into it
there was a sudden gush of raw egg white. Yuck.
