No post has ever made me happier in my life.
The technique of poaching—cooking something completely submerged in liquid over gentle heat—is classy yet not complicated. The operative word is gentle. You don’t want to bring the water to an aggressive, chaotic boil, the way you would for pasta; if you do, the food you’re poaching will either break apart or toughen. What you want instead is a lower, more caressing flame that will give you a sense of control and precision. The end result is imbued with the virtually untranslatable quality of moelleux, which sounds exactly like what it is: a soft, lovely, velvety mouthfeel that is utterly entrancing, utterly French.
