This fundamental principle of cookery, say specialists of the Bureau of Home Economics, applies to eggs, meats, cheese and fish. They say never actually boil an egg, but "soft cook" or "hard cook" it, with water at the simmering point. Scramble eggs in a double boiler, instead of directly over a flame.
