Poached

USE the freshest eggs possible. Add a splash of white wine ­vinegar to a pan with 5cm of water and bring to simmer.

Crack the egg into a ramekin. Stir the water to create a gentle whirlpool and slide the egg softly into the middle.

Cook until you can see the white is set – usually around three minutes.

Lift out with a slotted spoon, letting it drain for a few seconds. Place the spoon on kitchen paper to absorb any water and serve.

Scrambled

MELT a very generous knob of butter in a small frying pan over a low heat.

Crack in two large, fresh eggs and stir immediately with a wooden spoon.

Add salt and pepper then stir frequently, but not constantly. Keep the heat very low and cook slowly.

Remove from hob just before you think they are done, as they will continue to cook from residual heat.
