Let’s be honest. This week in France has been politics-heavy.
To remedy that, we’ve got an easy, delicious idea for a Friday night dinner to sooth your stress: check out this tutorial for the perfect, soft, buttery French omelette.
You can tell from the name that the French invented the omelette. It’s been around since the 14th century, although the official name “omelette” was introduced in the 17th century. But it seems to be Napoleon who really brought the omelette tradition to fame. As the story goes, Napoleon once ate an omelette made by a local chef and he thought it was so good that he ordered the townspeople to gather all the eggs they had and make a giant omelette for his army the next day.
So if you feel like dining like the Emperor of France during these hard times, learn how to make the perfect omelette.
