I enjoyed watching the Jacques Pepin video. Thanks Craig C.

I notice Pepin doesn't wash his hands between touching the raw eggs, fingering the butter, and eventually touching the cooked omelet.

I am curious to know if this bothers anyone?

Not me. Because it was filmed in his own home. Not in a studio.

If you watch him enough, you'll also notice he touches the food in the pan and tastes with his fingers.

It doesn't bother me. Keep in mind that he often prepares two or three dishes in a half hour episode. In order to fit everything in, I'm sure shortcuts must be made. I would certainly like to believe that in real life he's a little more careful.

I haven't tried this, but this Julia Child video looks less complicated to me. It's also fun to watch - she has fun cooking.

I love the video of Julia Child making omelets. DW wouldn't eat them though. For her, I have to flip the omelet. She likes hers to cooked to the point where they dry and toughen. I like mine very moist. I'll definitely be trying Julia's technique. They aren't quite as uniformly pretty, but it looks so easy. And the end result is very tender and moist. That's why she was a .

That's the best video yet Craig. Just as simple and straightforward as, wait for it..making an omelet.

I got the same message. Must be because the omlet was made using U.S. measure and not available in metric counties. After all, we have metric chickens.
