4 Levels of Omelets: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

  • Published on May 21, 2019
  • We challenged chefs of three different levels - an amateur, a home cook and a professional chef - to make their versions of an omelet. And then we brought in a food scientist to review their work. Which omelet was the best?
    Check out the professional's recipe here on the ICE blog: www.ice.edu/blog/french-omelet-recipe

    Genuine question:
    Is it an American or an English speaker thing that they always point out that things are theirs, i.e. "gonna take MY filling", "fry MY vegetables", English is not my mother toung and to me it sounds weird.
