Over the years I've tried all those so called easy tricks. By now, I am very OK with hopping into that truck parked out there and heading for the Omelet House. No matter what the ingredients, my omelets look like a "Joe's Special".

I'm with Oldvine. Hope she has space in the truck.

I'll leave my omelets to the professionals!

One of the two he cooked was browned. He made two types, a country omelet that was browned and a classic French omelet that was not. Watching him makes it look easy.

It looks easy but it's not :(

I still don't understand how Jacques Pépin can use a fork on a nonstick pan without wrecking it.

Very gently. Or maybe, he's actually using a silicone spatula, and the picture has been modified digitally to make it look like he's using a metal fork.

I don't have any problems with my omelets, and if I can do it, anyone can do it. What is it we're doing again?

We're hopping into Oldvine's truck and heading to the Omelet House. There's room in the back for you, Chief!

You can't expect to cook like Jacques Pepin after trying his technique a couple of times. It takes a lot of practice. Also, you can make those omelets without looking a s fast or slick as he does.

I have found other videos that I like better than his. I'll stick with those for now.
