...I believe I've written to you before on this blog.
I like you. I really do. You are bright and attractive and seem a nice person. But I cannot make your recipes work.
Take poached eggs. I like poached eggs, but mine always emerge from cloudy water resembling tattered ghosts, trailing clouds of, well, egg. So I looked up your method. One minute simmering, you said, and then ten minutes off the heat. Set the timer, you said. I did. And what did I get at the end of all this? More tattered ghosts.
I'm disappointed, Delia. Really I am.
I'm now going to see what Jamie and Nigella have to say. I'm determined to crack this (ha) , one way or another.
BTW if anyone reading this has a foolproof recipe for poached eggs, I'd love to know about it
