Egg Cookery...4 minute egg, Tempura 4 minute egg, and 17 minute steamer egg

Bored in the kitchen today so we did a little egg cookery. Egg cookery is one of the most difficult things to do "well" and takes a lot of finesse and care to execute properly...

Bring to water to a rolling boil...drop egg in (room temperature or will crack as you drop it in) and boil for 4 minutes.
Peel Egg and you have a cooked white but a beautiful running yolk.

Decided to Tempura fry it for the hell of it. Turned out nice

This egg was done 17 minutes in a commercial steamer...Perfect hard boiled or in this case "steamed egg"
Next on the list ...the 63 degree egg...

The ridges in a chef hat represent the different ways that particular chef can cook an egg. The more ridges the more accomplished the chef was (in theory, a long long time ago)
