    i make these all the time but put a paper towel in the pan under the ramekin so the vibration won't drive you crazy

    1:50-2:19 is why Jacques is the absolute greatest. He's not a snob or a narcissist. He just wants people to enjoy cooking and acknowledges that even the amateur can learn to be a great cook.

    Pure French genius in action. You're lucky you Americans have been able to see him at work as regularly on TV.

    I found chef Gabrielle Hamilton's behavior to be so respectful. I've seen too many cooking shows with the host talking over Pepin and it's such a bother. This however, was a great watch.

      Nonsense. Poaching eggs means to cook them freely floating in hot water. Poached eggs have a completely different taste.

    If you're looking forward to making Oeufs En Cocotte, heed my advice: place a kitchen towel on your counter, center the lid on it, and then fold up the corners over the top and toward the handle. This will prevent condensation from dripping into the ramekins and ruining the dish. Also, you may want to consider simmering a little double cream with a touch of Vegeta (a very popular Croatian vegetable powder you can buy on Amazon) and paprika and then spooning a layer over the eggs before steaming them. I also steam mine a bit longer for a barely set white and a thickened yolk. Delicious with smoked bacon and baguette. I cannot recommend these highly enough.

    I wish when I was a young man, that I could of learned all my cooking skills from him or someone like him. Jacques Pipin is not only a Culinary Legend and Master, he's also a damn good teacher as well.
