Modernist Cuisine have perfected the art of cooking eggs sunny-side up…

Modernist Cuisine

‘Cooking an egg sunny-side up to perfection poses an inherent problem: the yolk and the white reach their ideal textures at different temperatures. Our solution is to cook the yolk separately from the white and to then reassemble the two parts just before serving. That way, the yolk is like jam and the white is still buttery.’

The scientific team behind the sell-out Modernist Cuisine trilogy are about to launch their new book, Modernist Bread on the 7th of November.
