Soft Boiled Egg and Severine Von Tscharner Fleming Game Changer # 37

I feel kinda guilty about this next post. This dish was so easy to make and simply delicious. I don’t really consider it a recipe. We are at # 37 in our Gourmet 50 Women Game Changers . This is where Mary from One Perfect Bite leads us through all 50 women game changers. Today is Saverine Von Tscharner Fleming. Say that ten times fast!

There has been an overwhelming interest and demand in organic food. It makes us beg the question, where is our food coming from? In this instant access to everything, we want fresher cleaner ingredients for our diet. As consumers we have become more savvy in knowing what gets put on our plate.

This is where Severine Von Tscherner Fleming comes in. She is an activist, promoter, farmer and agrarian. Her grass roots organization helps supply the tools and support for new farmers.
Severine made a documentary called The Greenhorns. In this documentary she discussed a sleuth of modern issues such as environmental contaminants and farm bills.

Severine graduated with a B.S. in Conservative AgroEcology from University of California Berkley. This force of nature is the co-founder of the National Young Farmers Coalition.

 In honor of her, I made soft boiled eggs. You can get the recipe here. I also provided one below.

Three Minute Egg
Soft Boiled Egg
1 fresh egg
1 baguette slice
butter
salt and freshly ground pepper.
Directions
Put a medium saucepan filled half way with water on the stove over medium to high heat. Once the pan begins to boil add the egg to the water and set the timer for three minutes. While the egg is boiling toast the baguette slice and slather with butter.
When the timer goes off remove the eggs with a slotted spoon. Turn off the heat. 
Place the eggs in the cups and cut off the top of the egg. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Dip the toast into the egg. Using a spoon scoop out the egg and enjoy.

    Great post! And I’ve always wanted to try soft-boiling… it’s probably the only way I have yet to prepare an egg. It really does sound simple, though – thanks for the ‘recipe’!

    Mmmm….aside from a poached egg, soft-boiled is my absolute favorite. I may have to have one for dinner now. So beautiful :D

    I love your photos. You have the eye of a professional and you did a great job with this challenge. Severine was one of the most difficult subjects we’ve had to date. You really did a nice job with the limited information that is available. I hope you have a great weekend. Blessings…Mary

    I always have to smile when on Top Chef they ask the contestants to make a perfect egg dish and EVERYONE goes pale with fear. :) Again, I had not heard of this Game Changer or her documentary. Thanks again for the lesson!

    These pictures are gorgeous! I love the little egg holder & the slice of toast in the egg. I’m a huge fan of soft boiled eggs but I’ve never had one this way. Guess I’ll just have to try it out! :)
