WHAT WE'RE COOKING TODAY

Going into an Onsen requires you to have full confidence of your own body as you’re suppose to go into the hot spring, NAKED! This recipe you’re going to be making perfectly describes itself, firm on the outside, wobbly on the inside (Disclaimer: gym junkies excluded). All this, submerged in a delicate warm sauce. Everything cooking method you can think of, you can make perfect eggs in be it fried, baked, poached, steamed, boiled etc. Forget buying expensive sous vide machine just to...
