    Jacques Pépin Omelette Masterpiece :
    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

    You need to beat the eggs more until they are a lemony yellow. Their texture and workability changes.

    Alex I made a perfect (almost ;-)) omelet following your hard-learned instructions! It was delicious and eggs were creamy and buttery and oh so good! The next can only be better. Thank you! Love your channel.

    Just my chef's intuition, but I think there is a step you edited out. I think the color of the earlier eggs and the texture betrays that you didn't add any liquid. A bit of cream, milk or even water (I use both milk and water. I find the water fluffs up the eggs better). Putting in a bit of liquid lightens up the color of the eggs and makes for a perfect texture in a french omelet.

    OK stop. This isn't funny. It's a load of pretentious bllx.
    There will be ppl watching this who are learning to cook. Starting off with simple, quick recipes. Minimal Ingredients. To get them started. This type of video doesn't give people confidence, encouragement or inspiration. If anything it will kill off any enthusiasm. And sending ppl straight to the nearest fast food outlet. They'll be thinking I'm no good, I can't even make an omellette... Its too complicated... Too long... Too scientific...so there's fat chance of getting any further. Developing any skills and moving onto something more challenging. You're not encouraging cooking at all. You're killing it.
    Im usually a fan of yours but this time, you've got it so wrong my friend.....
    May I suggest starting with a basic, quick & simple omellette...and encourage ppl to add thier own ingredients, flavours etc... Encourage an interest in food and cooking. Don't put ppl off.

      ...anyway, love the enthusiasm. Here's a tip, add 5% water to the egg before whipping it up. Have the pan well over boiling. Then when you add the eggs, a layer of steam will form, the omelet cooks in butter and steam pockets staying separate from the pan. The steam makes the eggs fluffy too. Practice in the country style, master in the classic style. :-)

    You can use wood chopsticks instead of fork. Please try to make Japanese Omurice. The omelette is fluffy and can flow down after cut open.

    So this is a lowkey teaser for John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum? You knew it all this time Alex?!
    Well, to answer what you said at 7:35 , Just refer to what John Wick answered:

    I love how France does their omelettes super smooth and juicy. In Italy they make somewhat dryer omelettes cooking with higher temperatures to "caramelize" a few spots and give it some texture.
