From the Test Kitchen

In this recipe, we’re tackling a culinary favorite: poached eggs. Tender and pillowy with a silky finish, poached eggs are a wonderful addition to many dishes, and the simple technique used to make them should be in every chef’s arsenal. Here, you’ll use the poached eggs to top a bowl of dressed soba noodles. In the dressing, you’ll use a special kind of miso called “shiro.” It’s lightly fermented and rich in umami—the perfect base for the flavors of this dish.
