  • sea salt to taste
  • freshly cracked black pepper to taste
  • red pepper flakes to taste
  • 6 sprigs mixed herbs -for garnish
  • 5 sprigs fresh chives -snipped
  • 8 edible flowers for garnish (optional)


  • Add water to a sauce pan and bring to a boil.
    Using a spoon gently drop the eggs in one by one. Once the water is back to a boil turn down the flame and set your timer for exactly 5 minutes.
  • After 5 minutes drain the water and rinse the eggs under some very cold water or plunge them into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process.
  • Carefully peel the eggs then slice them in half lengthwise. Season to your taste with the sea salt, red pepper, black pepper and garnish with the herbs.
