Every Michelin star chef in high-end restaurants has to first learn the basics of cooking. And what can be more basic than a poached egg? It is the dish that many get scared of and only a select few can get it right. But don’t get intimidated because the recipe to a perfectly gooey and silky poached egg isn’t that difficult.

Preparation

  1. Fill a small saucepan with water and bring to a boil.
  2. Once the bubbles start to arise, turn the heat down.
  3. Slowly add the cracked egg from a measuring cup into the saucepan with water.
  4. Add vinegar to the water to keep the white part in place and push the egg under the water very lightly.
  5. Choose the duration of cooking depending upon how well you want your egg to be done.
