4 Levels of Omelets: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

Codice da incorporare
  • Pubblicato il 21 mag 2019
  • We challenged chefs of three different levels - an amateur, a home cook and a professional chef - to make their versions of an omelet. And then we brought in a food scientist to review their work. Which omelet was the best?
    Check out the professional's recipe here on the ICE blog: www.ice.edu/blog/french-omelet-recipe

    as per usual I prefer Lorenzo's over the level 3 chef, but at least this pro chef didn't annoy me

    Also whoever taught Emily to water down her omelet should go to jail

    Lost some credit for the "expert"/"scientist" when she stated there are only 2 parts to the egg...there are 2 different whites and they cook at different temperatures on either side of the yolk...

    I like my scrambled eggs with the egg shell, it adds more texture and crunch to it also i doesadd some sort of freshness and it balances really well the saltyness and the sweetness

    Very disappointed that the professional didn't leave the omelette alone to cook on one side, then pan flip it to cook the other evenly before filling.

    I always prefer Lorenzo when it comes to these videos. Idk what it is but what he does just sounds like a better way to cook than what the Lvl 3 does making it very complicated most of the time lol

    I'm surprised no one, especially the level 3, put cream or milk into their egg mixture. Adds so much more body and fluffiness.

  • Craig Hocker

    WTF?! The level 3 is just doing scrambled eggs. Lol. That’s not an omelette. Kudos to the Home Cook. The only thing the food scientist added was yes, an omelette is when you mix in a little whole milk, and whip that up. Hard cheeses are fine because they will melt when you rest the omelet after taking it of the heat.

    The level 1 looked as good as 2 or 3, except for her fillings. I need me some cheese in my omelet and no thanks to the peppers.
    1 and 2 looked better then 3 to me. I like my omelets browned.

  • Bruderschaft von Nod TV

    My omletts usually contain no filling. To be honest, it's just scrambled egg with a bit of milk and salt.

    Now can we see a French chef make a proper French omlette??? I thought it was funny when a chef says she uses two hands to "separate" the eggs, then does not separate them,,, OH and she wanted the eggs to be homogonized... LMAO!!!

    Level 3, I understand you went to school for this but you try too hard... Yours was way too green, no one ever just eats mushrooms and goat cheese, and really a piping bag? That isn't even breakfast, and with how you made it it can barely be called an omelette, it's more of a pan fried keesh you filled with dinner ingredients that wishes it was an omelette. Not saying you are a bad cook, I'm saying try not to be so pretentious, it was just breakfast.
