New York chef, restauranteur, and Top Chef host Tom Colicchio knows a thing or two about scrambling eggs. While teaming up with John Hancock to promote healthy eating, Tom spoke to me on the phone about his preferred method to scramble perfectly soft curds. Here it is:

  1. Crack some eggs in a bowl. Beat vigorously so that the eggs aerate. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat a pan over medium-high heat. Add some butter.
  3. Add eggs to pan and scramble eggs with a wire whisk until soft curds begin to form. Put down the whisk and use a wooden spatula to gently fold the eggs until they firm up slightly.
