How do you make perfect scrambled eggs? It turns out that both Chef Gordon Ramsey and my mom know the secret. Slow and controlled cooking are the keys to the game. All of those proteins that make eggs such a healthy food hold together scrambled eggs and crème brûlées and ice cream. In uncooked eggs, the proteins don’t want much to do with one another. But if you heat them up, they will change shapes and start looking for partners to hang out with, which is a process that is ubiquitous to almost all cooking.
