Make Better Scrambled Eggs With A Bain Marie

Everyone has their own technique for making scrambled eggs. However, if you’ve never tried the low-and-slow method of cooking eggs with a bain marie (also known as a double boiler), you may be in for a treat. This technique promises to result in foolproof, softer and fluffier scrambled eggs.

Chef Cathal Kavanagh, an executive chef at Carton House, demonstrates this method in the video above. Start with a pot of boiling water and melt some butter in the top bowl (you could also use a pan held over the pot). Whisk up your eggs and then slide them into the bowl, gently stirring them in the bowl.

Kavanagh says this technique, while it take a little longer, protects the eggs and keeps them from getting dried out or rubbery.

Gordon Ramsay has a different technique, but he claims that cooking a scrambled egg perfectly is the mark of a truly good cook. So whichever method you use, making perfect scrambled eggs might be a good skill to learn.
