What's WIDE CIRCLE COOKING about?
I blog information, news and recipes about gluten-free, wheat-free, dairy-free, egg-free, alcohol-free and vegan cooking. Right now I've been working on an exciting project where I avoid refined sugar and create recipes using a range of healthier alternatives.

Happy cooking!

ps. ask all guests if they have an allergy (because the recipes use some unusual combinations and they may not expect to find citrus and soya in the chocolate cake, for example).
pps.if you are cooking for someone with an allergy, please read my allergy page first.

Perfect poached eggs

Aah, poached eggs.. seem so tricky don't they? Well, the great news is to get a poached egg perfect is one of the easiest ways to cook an egg, and you don't need to shell [he he, sorry, couldn't resist] out any money on newfangled contraptions either.

You will need:
1 egg, v fresh (you can tell the freshness of an egg by putting it in a large glass of water. It should sink to the bottom and lie on its side)
1 muffin or slice of bread


Boil a pan of water. Take it off the heat. Crack the egg in. Immediately put your muffin/bread in the toaster. When the toaster pops, the egg will be done to perfection too! Use a slotted spoon to extract it from the water. See - I told you it was easy!

PS. Another lifehack: if you need to do more than one egg, just use a big pan of water. The eggs will all float to the top when they are done. Magic, eh?
