In 2012, Amanda Hesser taught us to perfectly poach an egg using a technique she lovingly calls the "Control Freak Method." Today, we're bringing it back. Learn to poach an egg, peek at Amanda's kitchen (we haven't shot a video in Amanda's kitchen in a couple of years!), and revel in how seriously Amanda takes egg-poaching. As should we all.

Do you have any egg-poaching tips and tricks? Share them—and the name of your method—in the comments!
