When I get a chance I try and watch Masterchef but at the moment I've got so many previous episodes to catchup on. Poaching an egg has always been a mystery to me so when it was demonstrated on Masterclass - Episode 17 using cling wrap I had to give it a go. It was very tricky trying to tie a good knot with the cling wrap so next time I think I'll just use a wooden peg if it works. I thought the video said 10 minutes in boiling water but this seemed too long to me. I kept it in for 6 minutes and this ended up being way too long and the egg was a bit too firm. I rechecked the video and they actually said about 4 minutes on a 'simmer'. No wonder I got it totally wrong — but next time I'll hopefully get it right. Glad I wasn't trying this on Masterchef but I especially enjoy watching the master classes to learn lots of practical cooking tips.
