“Whipped cream isn’t whipped cream at all if it hasn’t been whipped with whips, just like poached eggs isn’t poached eggs unless it’s been stolen in the dead of the night.” -Roald Dahl in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
You might remember the ridiculousness that was my post about whipping cream with no whisk.
Well, from the same geniuses that brought you that, we also have poached eggs.
You see, the next morning, on the very same trip away to the cabin, P (the guy seen in the video in the whisk video shaking the bowl) was making eggs. He made scrambled eggs for everyone and then opened up the offer to make whatever eggs people wanted.
Innocent request. He definitely thought nobody wound want anything out of the ordinary.
Then, his wife, A, decided she wanted poached eggs.
None of us knew how to make a poached egg. Especially without those little special container thingies.
So, we did what any intelligent group of twenty and thirty somethings would do… We Googled it.
And this time we found several educational videos. Sure beats how to make whipped cream without a whisk.
So, he made a poached egg. And said that he wasn’t sure if it was fully cooked.
The whole egg thing was kind of funny and also a good lesson in being resourceful and persistent. It is amazing what you can figure out with trial and error (and Google).
