    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

    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

    Hmm just tried to cook it now. Stirring is the key part. Getting color is easy and they do feel fluffy and have amazing texture, never knew that there is thing for a omelette to taste good. After all, i do feel satisfied as I cooked something that tasted way better than my classic omelette.

    I have tried to do this (omelette making) per Jacques Pepin teachings (on PBS) but I have a glass top range and I can't shake pan around (or I would ruin surface). So I resolved myself to just do the stirring technique. Greatly improve my omelette making. Loved your video.

  • Ивайло Стефанов

    I hate this kinds of omlettes. I honestly, deeply and passionately hate this kind of egg-cooking. It's like with meat. I like my meat and my eggs the same - dry, fully cooked and spicy. If you it's still runny, soggy or smells as the original ingredient - it ain't cooked, brother. It's just been warmed.

    Don't forget to take the hairs out of the omelette from your unruly mane. Why did you sit on the countertop? You show alot of unprofessionalism. If I saw you cooking in a restaurant, I would leave that restaurant.

  • Thomas Shue's World

    It's 85%. Nice work. I'm still trying to perfect this process. The problem is my family won't eat wet eggs. I can only practice once every few days for my own breakfast. I'm about where you are in final quality. I think the trick is to pool the liquid to the bottom of the tilted pan and don't be afraid that the eggs are going to be too wet. Also I think we need to rest the omelette on the plate so that the wet part of the egg can firm up a little (into a custard consistency). Again nice work, but Chef Pepin is a master.

    This is hilarious, usually I finish with what he did with his first attempt and I'm like "meh, whatever" and then move on with my day. This guy is like, "no! I'm going to spend my day working on this until I get it right!" This is why I stick to frittatas lol.

    You need a proper stove and don't being afraid to do the dual movement, with that heat you need to stir it like that bc otherwise it will stick no matter the butter. Remenber, like your friend Gennaro contaldo said, if stand under the sun you will burn, if you move you will sweat.
    P.s Well done! Now i want to see you making 'Cachapas'

    Pepin’s technique is AMAZING the master! Finding your own way is what I learned. I cringed when I see the metal fork on nonstick pan! Took me 50 plus omelettes before I could roll one out consistently. I watched Julia’s, Pepin’s, Bon Petite and Kenji Lopez and many more... I cobbled all the tips together. Here’s to high cholesterol trying to learn this technique!

    Now you need to make Omurice which should lead to a whole new set of challenges.
