  1. Add water up to 5-6cm in a large pan. Bring to a boil.
  2. Break one egg into a bowl.
  3. Reduce heat to a point where the water barely bubbles, and then gently stir with a large wooden spoon in a circular movement. This will create a whirlpool that will pull the egg towards the center of the pan.
  4. Slide the egg carefully into the water.
  5. For poached yolks that are firm and runny, allow 3 1/2 to 4 minutes.
