How to cook an omelette: Julia Child

No clever arrangement of bad eggs ever made a good omelette.
~ C. S. Lewis

I watched this last night just before I went to bed.

No dream last night could distract me from my Julia-omelette-making-mission this morning.

Everything went well until I got to the swirling and jerking bit (a little tricky on the kind of stove we have too which isn’t a flat surface). Good heavens, I was glad none of my flatmates were there to witness it. It was hilarious, especially at 7.15 in the morning! I made myself laugh. Try as I might, it didn’t quite look like how it did in Julia’s video either…

By the time I rolled it onto a plate though, it appeared to look almost like Julia’s… (albeit slightly overdone in my bid to jerk the omelette into a roll… sigh!)

Modifications: I added fresh rosemary leaves to the herb sprinkle on the omelette (see previous post for current-rosemary-obsession-explanation).

  1. I was just wondering what to have for breakfast. I think you’ve just answered my question! I love omelets, have never tried it with rosemary though… maybe I’ll go pick some from the garden and give it a try :)
