This morning I poached two perfect eggs. I am a pretty good cook, adventurous with techniques, cuisines and ingredients. For some reason producing perfect poached eggs has alluded me and for someone who has mastered much more difficult tasks in the kitchen, it has been infuriating. This morning the cooking gods came together, my stars were aligned and they came out just right. It will take me a few more goes before I am comfortable incorporating poached eggs into menus for guests but I am relived to have had some measure of success.

What technique, dish or cuisine have you turned out successfully that left you with a particularly proud of yourself?
