Egg (1)

Boiling water

James Avalon: First of all, is this something anyone can learn to make?

Chef Kent: Probably.

JA: Okay, what’s the first step?

CK: Well, first I like to fill a pot with water and bring it to a steady boil.

JA: Really? I’m such a novice; I would have just put the egg in the empty pot!

CK: Ha-ha, yes, a lot of first-timers make that mistake.

JA: Do you watch the pot when it’s coming to a boil?

CK: No. Never.

JA: So, what happens after the water starts boiling?

CK: After the water comes to a boil, I like to open my refrigerator and pick out an egg. Then I carefully place the egg into the pot of boiling water.

JA: Okay, that makes sense.

CK: Then I let the egg boil for ten minutes.

JA: Now, when you say, “boil,” what do you mean?

CK: Boiling is a term we use in the culinary world to describe something that is being cooked by very hot water.

JA: I see. What do you do while the egg is boiling?

CK: I usually read the newspaper, but sometimes I’ll water my garden.

JA: is there a certain section of the newspaper you suggest reading while the egg is boiling?

CK: The classified ads are pretty good. If you like sports, I recommend the sports section.

JA: Does this affect the outcome of the egg?

CK: No.

JA: So, what happens after the egg boils for ten minutes?

CK: It’s done.

JA: Is there a technique to getting the egg out of the pot?

CK: Yes, there is. I find that a slotted spoon is the best utensil for removing the egg from the pot.

JA: Fascinating. Could you explain what that is, for some of our readers who might not know?

CK: It’s a spoon with slots in it, so that liquid may pass through the spoon rather than spill on to the dish that you’re preparing.

JA: Is there a technique to using this spoon?

CK: No, it just works like a regular spoon.

JA: Alright. What do you do once the egg has been removed from the pot?

CK: I put it on a plate, peel the shell off, and eat it.

JA: Oh… so, you don’t actually eat the shell?

CK: No.

Ladies and Gentlemen: there you have it, that’s how you make a Hard Boiled Egg, in a nutshell; or should I say… eggshell. For more of Chef Kent’s great recipes, please visit
