This Is What Poaching An Egg Looks Like

Poaching might be egg preparation 101, but it's definitely the most difficult basic preparation, and I've always sort of wondered what was actually going on in the pot as I was trying my hardest to make a few vortexes.

Well, thanks to GoPro and, I don't have to worry any longer, 'cause the website's Davy Devaux dropped a GoPro into the boiling water with his egg.

It's an experience. Check it out the video after the jump.

That's pretty mesmerizing. Now to work on my hollandaise.
