Scrambled eggs 2.0: scrambled eggs with mushrooms

A new take on scrambled eggs with mushrooms, which seeks to reinforce the flavour through low sous-vide cooking at a low temperature (this sous-vide cooking leads to a concentration of the flavours of the same components). Thus the flavours and aromas of the ingredients being cooked are strengthened. The egg is present in a very exceptional way, represented with mini-yolks and whites crystallised at 64º.
