I tested this recipe, without using the pea puree, and it was thin but OK. Will use pea puree for the feast, and reduce the sage a bit. I'd never poached eggs before, but used Isobel's suggestion to swirl the water before dropping the egg in. So all good. Will also use galingale instead of ginger, as His Excellency Baron Rudolf is allergic to ginger.
