How should you boil an egg to achieve the perfect texture? That all depends how you define perfect. We tested all sorts of methods, from dropping a dozen eggs into boiling water (pictured) to starting them in cold H2O and then bringing the heat. Go to to find out which techniques to use when, and you can make your eggs exactly the way you like them-every time. BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! Ricky Gervais (see page 116) can’t stop talking about cheese, and Andrew Zimmern (see page 20) has a lot of opinions on who to follow on Twitter.

the gang’s all here

MY DAD USED TO CALL IT THE GUYS’ LUNCH. Every month or so, he’d get together with our next-door neighbor Ralph Muoio, our up-the-block neighbor Pat Fleming, and Ralph’s former law partner Bob Elliott. This was back in the early ’90s, when Republicans and Democrats in Washington, D.C., used to talk to each other—even break bread together. The restaurant of choice was usually Otello, an Italian joint off Dupont Circle owned by a Portuguese gentleman named Carlos. Pat and my dad, old-school liberals, would plant themselves firmly on the left side of the table, so to speak. Ralph and Bob (tax attorneys) bolted themselves to the right. Fried mozzarella sticks would start off the meal. Ralph, who grew up on Staten Island in the 1930s and who could legitimately be described…

the ba arsenal bread winner

It’s not often you dream about something you ate at a restaurant. But the warm, buttery, pull-apart, rotiesque "flaky bread" at Brooklyn’s Glasserie is powerful stuff. Once I made my own version, I found even more to love: It’s easy to throw together (just five ingredients) and crazy versatile (eat it with eggs in the morning, with dip for a snack, or wrapped around grilled meat at dinner). Best of all, you can make the dough ahead of time, freeze, and when a craving strikes or a friend stops by unannounced-boom! Just griddle and you’re good to go. For the recipe, plus three ante-upping dips, turn the page. -ALISON ROMAN HOW WE DIP CHARRED EGGPLANT AND TAHINI SPREAD Cut 1 large eggplant lengthwise into quarters.
