Master the French Omelet
Much to love about the omelet: It’s fast, healthy, and astonishingly satisfying for such a simple dish. Speed is key. The
best omelets, in my opinion, are the classic French style, which cook in about 90 seconds. Yes, they require finesse: Chefs
are judged by their omelet skills. But risks are low: You won’t ruin it, just overcook it a little; and costs are low, too.
You’re aiming for an omelet that’s smooth outside and gleaming yellow (not browned, non, non, non). It’s creamy at the center, like velvety custard. Said French chef Raymond Blanc, “If you do not have two minutes to prepare
a proper omelet, then life is not worth living.”
