But today, in the time of timers and gas controls, egg boiling is science. Follow an algorithm, turn the heat on some H20 for 3/6/9 minutes, and almost everyone can be a yolk-star. I expect the problem went from art to science not in a series of DARPA-funded experiments that varied time, heat, and water, resulting in many post-doctoral positions, but via the obscure processes through which cultural wisdom develops over the ages.
Three cheers for cultural wisdom - which gave us much of what we love to eat (in the pre-molecular gastronomy days).
ok, this month, I actually, really, effectively learnt how to boil an egg with consistent results. Call it my
Anda Andy Murray moment.
