i've never been that fond of eggs, i'll pretty much only eat them well scrambled. as a kid i loved to color and hide them, but would then see them disappear into my dads lunch. after reading tamar adler's an everlasting meal, her reverence for the egg piqued my interest in trying them again, and now seemed like the perfect time. her method of cooking eggs produces a silky soft boiled egg that has no resemblance to the rubbery eggs i've eaten. next weekend i'll try a poached egg. happy egg day!
