We recently came across an issue of Cook’s Illustrated, a magazine dedicated to food and cooking.We had never seen it before. And in it are processes for making meals, processes we know as recipes.
But here is what we found curious. Take the above mentioned scrambled eggs. If like us you prefer your scrambled eggs light and fluffy, not like cover board, Cook’s tells you how to make them that way and what happens when you don’t.
Here’s an excerpt.
“As the proteins in the eggs continue to heat, they unfold and then bond together to form a latticed gel in a process known as coagulation. The texture of the eggs depends on exactly how much unfolding and bonding occurs.”
So the process/recipe is not only how to make perfect scrambled eggs but why do it a specific way.
