CHOW Tips - Poach An Egg In Plastic Wrap?!

The folks over at chow.com have put up a video on their youtube channel about how to sous vide an egg in some plastic wrap.  What you get is a perfectly poached egg.  The best thing about this method is that there is no skimming of egg whites from the simmering water. You can also prepare the eggs with flavored oils, and other ingredients for customized poached eggs .  Lastly, you can poach the eggs and then preserve them for use later by putting them into a ice water bath to stop them from cooking.  Then when you need a poached egg, pull one out and unwrap. Enjoy.  Perfect!

My friends got in line, I went in to scope out how long it would be.   I passed the automatic doors and saw the line twisted to and fro, back and forth, amongst various food stands and displays.  I inquired the length of time people were waiting, 2-3 hrs was the wait time.  
OMG! No frick'n way!!!  
No pastry was worth that wait!Luckily, my friend came in to see the line size and saw their sister in law and was able to snag a few to share with us! Thanks CHAN!  The max you could get for one person was a dozen for $20.   
Now don't get me wrong, the donuts were very tasty and had that slight chewiness of fresh pastries combined with mochi, but they weren't mind blowing crazy good.  The best donut was the one l…
