An amuse-bouche better known as the Arpège Egg.

Top raw eggs and separate the whites from the yolks. Remove the white membrane lining the shell and replace yolks.
Save the whites for another use.

Float the yolk filled shell in simmering water for three minutes. The yolk will be set around the edge but still liquid in the middle.



Season the yolks with salt, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, and white pepper

looks mighty interesting, but alas I can't do runny yolk. My stomach does flip-flops just thinking about it. However, I love your presentation and descriptions, it does make me want to try it, at least just one spoonful to experience it. Thanks for the post!
