Chef Bob our Kanpei Restaurant Executive Chef has made a lovely dish here that will blow your guests or your family away on a Sunday morning. These simple as heck poached eggs will be just a breath of fresh air for breakfast or for afternoon tea with a cup of your favorite tea or coffee.

When poaching the eggs it is important that you add them one by one to ensure the water temperature does not go down too much by adding too many eggs all at once. Make sure the boiling water is a slow boil as when the water boils harshly there is a chance that the egg yolks will break or overcook.

Happy Poaching!
