1. Bring a large pot of water with 1 to 2 tablespoons of vinegar to a boil. Gently add 12 eggs to the water. Cook 13 minutes. Remove eggs and shock in an ice bath for 5 to 10 minutes. Peel, halve, and separate yolks.

2. Make the filling: Blend yolks, 1?4 cup mayonnaise, 2 ounces goat cheese, and 1?4 cup harissa* in a food processor until smooth. Season with salt, lemon juice, and Aleppo pepper to taste. Place mixture in a piping bag.

3. To assemble, fill egg-white halves with yolk mixture. Top each with a thinly sliced ring of Fresno chile, Aleppo pepper, and a chopped blend of parsley, chervil, tarragon, and chives.
