Poaching is one of the most beautiful ways to prepare eggs, and when done correctly yields a perfect yolk and delicate but firm white! It can be slightly tricky to retain the perfect shape when poaching, but Jamie’s clever twist solves this problem: he uses clingfilm and a little olive oil to create individual egg-parcels, which are then dropped into the water to bob around while they cook.
