I am planning a cocktail party, and since there will be a lot of moving parts, I'm trying to make as much as possible in advance.
One hors d'oeuvre calls for soft-boiled quail eggs: must I boil these a la minute? Or can I a) boil them the morning of, and keep them in the shell until just before serving, or b) (even better), soft-boil them the morning of, remove the shells, and then gently reheat them in water just before serving.
