The Art of the French Omelette

I’m committed to mastering the art of the French omelette. This is a new development thanks to Jon and Kasra who just made me watch 20 minutes of French omelette Youtube videos.

At first I thought, “What could be so hard about making eggs?” Then I watched these videos and realized what all the fuss is about. There’s beauty in the simplicity, technique, and tradition.

According to Jacques Pepin, he judges the skill of a chef based on their omelette making ability. Well, Monsieur Pepin, challenge officially accepted.

Side note: There seems to be a silent debate in the culinary world that’s similar to developers arguing about tabs vs. spaces. Half of the videos we watched add salt after beating eggs and the others add them after plating. TBD where I land on this issue.
