    I tried to Master the Perfect French Classic Omelette. It took me 9 Omelettes, 32 eggs and 6 antacids. Here's a great pan : amzn.to/2qc2P5c

    To get the right number of egg for your pan, the Omelet(te) spreadsheet is here : docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ZjSLqRVOSmLZtu7ZNG_GmFpgYE5znZqhGscuRKFWDNE/edit?usp=sharing
    The Twelve Commandments of the Omelet :
    * Optimal pan/eggs ratio
    * Whisk it, no lumps
    * Pan temperature (medium-hot)
    * Butter be bubbling not browning
    * Lil’ sound when pouring the eggs
    * Combo move, Pan back and forth + Fork’s eights
    * Shake flat, Shake Tilted, Take off the heat
    * Thin skin on top, easier to fold, Thicker at the bottom
    * Duck/moon shape
    * When TAP TAP, almost flat.
    * Seal it and or stuff it
    * Reverse hand

    HOW HARD IS IT?!!?!? DON'T USE METAL IN NON-STICK PANS ffs the non-stick is plastic and the metal removes it, witch makes plastic end up in your food.

    Most American restaurants who serve “meatballs” constantly harp on about how they got the recipe from their nonna in the old country blah blah. Wouldn’t it have been easier and cheaper therefore to hop on a €30 flight to Naples for a day...?

      How out of touch are you that you think a flight from america to Naples is 30 euro? Also, how is flying to europe to search for a new generations old recipe cheaper than using the one you already have? Also, why tf are you talking about meatballs??

    That look on Alex's face at 1:53 when Chef Pépin folds that omelet out of the pan is priceless.

    FWIW after using the ‘dual action’ of scrambling the eggs while shaking the pan, I figured out that sliding the pan on the stove actually serves two purposes- yes it keeps the whole omelet moving while it’s cooking, but (I think) more importantly it gives you a very good read on exactly how much the eggs are setting up, so how close you are to the not where the eggs will be too cooked to easily shape into the bottom of the pan.

    My mom is Mexican, she makes under cooked eggs so well that when I started making eggs in culinary school I perfected the skill in less than minutes. Only flaw was I like to use oil and French cooking is with *shit ton* butter...

    a quick stop from the video, shouldn't you consider a non stick pan first? then discuss about the ratio between the pan mesure and the ... omelette? just saying tho

    Love this video. How many attempts did it really take you? Just tried this several times and failed miserably every time.
    Update. The pan is everything. My nonstick coating had worn off. Bought a new one and lowered the heat to medium-low and got closer.

    Idk if this significant or not but an experienced sushi gourmet eater would test a good sushi restaurant s by asking a tamago sushi (the egg sushi)
    I just wanna say that , mastering cooking egg is really international acknowledged skill .

  • 1daftpunk

    I think something to consider for the spreadsheet is the size of eggs being used
    I found that 4 eggs (size 7 - large) in a 24cm pan was too much. 3 eggs was ideal - not by any means perfect to the level of Chef Pepin or even to Alex’s version... but I’m getting close

    I went trough the same evolution a few years ago. I ended up making a two egg version in a slightly smaller pan, because my other pan is just too heavy, and I've never been satisfied with the glase I'm able to get when I season it. When that pan is well seasoned I can flip the omelette out in one motion. I prefer to cook them a little bit harder to get a bit more colour, but finish when it is still not cooked through on top. I stir with a fork, and start the flip with a thin stainless spatula.

    to make a good omelet you have to stir / mix the eggs for a long time. Make the batter fluffy. Get some air into the mass

    Bonjour Alex, I just found your videos, enjoy the 7 or so that I've watched, enjoy the torture. Please let me know your thoughts.... there was no mention of whether the eggs were cold or room temperature, and no shot of salt being thrown about. I use only sweet butter but maybe yours is already salted.. Pepin added salt and pepper. Thanks, LM

    My best omelets come from stainless. Non stick pans are a laze way to cook.
    Edit: Could be good but must try for myself.
