Egg Cooking: Mastering the art of egg cooking is a fundamental culinary skill that every aspiring chef should possess. Whether you prefer your eggs scrambled, poached, or hard-boiled, the right cooking technique is crucial to achieving a perfect outcome. With Ducatillon Austria, we will explore various egg cooking methods and share tips for achieving delicious eggs every time.

Scrambled Eggs: Cooking scrambled eggs is simple, but there are some elements to keep in mind to avoid ending up with dry and rubbery eggs. First, crack the eggs into a bowl and lightly beat them with a fork. Be careful not to overbeat, as it may make the eggs too frothy. In a non-stick pan, melt some butter or oil over medium heat. Add the eggs and gently stir with a silicone spatula until cooked to your liking. Remove from heat immediately to prevent overcooking.

Poached Eggs: Poaching eggs may seem intimidating, but with a bit of practice and patience, you can achieve perfect poached eggs every time. Here are the steps to poach eggs:

1. Bring a pot of water to a boil and add a pinch of salt and a tablespoon of white vinegar (vinegar helps coagulate the egg white so that it doesn't disperse in the water). 2. Crack an egg into a small bowl or cup. 3. Reduce the heat so that the water simmers gently. 4. Swirl the water to create a vortex in the pot (this will help give a round shape to the poached egg). 5. Gently and carefully pour the egg into the water, letting it slide from the bowl or cup. 6. Allow the poached egg to cook for about 3-4 minutes or until the white is set, and the yolk is still runny (if you prefer a firmer yolk, let it cook for an additional 1-2 minutes).
