If French accent was an art he would be the master of it.

What he says about cooking omelette and it is deceivingly simple yet difficult is so, so true.\n\nI have to laugh when I see people use these big flexible spatculas, and they make it as difficult as splitting an atom to fold the omlette. Here you see the master, using nothing but a fork (with a non-stick pan,,, ohh me ohh my!!) and he makes it look so easy... \n\nJacque Pepin is the man!

Excellent technique apart from the fork

Superbe vidéo. Merci Chef.
Chris Schoning
And you just destroyed a non-stick pan.
Now this is how you do it - All these years i`ve spoiled the egg batter with milk or water \u003e( how i got taught) This makes more sense and looks great! Now some sliced tomatoes on the side and buttered baguette!
Ok. I cook the farmhouse type.
If you cannot tell the difference between anodized aluminum and Teflon why are you even watching Jacques Pepin's videos! Learn your basics first.

Now you guys try it with some ham and cheese, and you’re in heaven 🙌🏻
He bought?
An omelet is fried egg, sometimes with other stuff chopped up in it. The only way you can really screw it up is to undercook it. Which is what he does here. He's serving raw egg. The folding operation makes scrambled eggs an omelette. Omelets are pretentious nonsense for people who like egg. (In this case, undercooked.)

Glip Abazza
Ruining the frying-pan with a fork + grotesque accent = CLOWN.
Perfect. Just... ehm... nothing. Ok. One of those beautiful pans lasts 10 omelettes. I said it.
Ian Rivlin
He makes it look so damn easy!
Il Fiflouz
et quel accent!! ahah
Ivy Carpenter
I’m cringing watching him scrape the pan with his fork!😬
John Berard
It is so nice to watch a video that respectfully acknowedges different styles of cooking. It is so frustration to see \
John Richards
This guy is the real deal. I apprenticed at a good restaurant where our Spanish grill cook could prepare four classic French omelets simultaneously. Not a spot of brown on any of of them.
John Yves
Woaw! French cuisine is a skilled art ! Well done Monsieur le Chef !
Jupiter Eye
I am about to go to bed... it is late... only now I feel like I need to crack some eggs and make one or two omelets. Why did I watch this at these late hours...?
4:34 RUN MY KNIFE AROUND 😂🤣 but he's actually using a fork
Katerina Ven
The eggs are yellow, the omelets are raw the technique teribel and the pan distroit. (sorry for my English).
I can tell by the sound of the pan that is not a Teflon pan you potatoes
Lance Baker
He doesn't really scrape the Teflon, just drags the fork lightly. Chefs tend not to use plastic or wooden tools to stir.

Yeah sure, use a metal fork on your non stick teflon pan and scrap it as quickly as possible. Pro.

Ok an omelette ain't an omelette without any cheese at least in my neck of the woods lol I can listen to this dude talk food all day
This man, literally, cooks an omelette in front of our eyes! Genius!
Nicklaus Books
Pro tip #243: use metal on nonstick pans.
Nikhil B
I am from India and I like my omlette with onions, tomatoes green chillies and little turmeric powder mixed in it.
so this is where that Japanese chef got inspiration from to make the perfect omelette over the rice and cut it into half to make it dribble gooily over the rice,\n oh yes you know what I'm talking about the famous YouTube video about the Japanese chef making that soft colored omelet over rice dish
Patrick Stoneburgh
Why did he season his eggs before they are cooked. Most other chefs say not to do this ?
Peaceful BigFoot
I love him \nAnd the way he says omelette is so funny
Pork Roast
Make sure to get as much as possible of the pans coating mixed into the eggs.

Metal fork grating against the metal skillet makes my teeth feel funny. Cringe.
Sam Mact
My favorite! Partially raw egg mixed with delicious aluminum flakes.
With regards to the issue of his using a fork on a nonstick pan, remember Jacques came up at a time when carbon steel pans were the norm. And you could beat on those with impunity.\n\nIf there are concerns doing this with your pans, the technique can be modified to use safer utensils, such as silicone spatulas.
Shiro Tan
Is this the chef that taught us how to dice onyo? (onion)
Steve Parker
WTF I've never seen a chef treat his pan with such disrespect, WTF was he thinking, I know lemme just scrape all the Teflon off and incorporate it into my eggs, has this guy lost his mind, or was Teflon considered a healthy diet back then.
99.9% of this comment section: \nOh my gosh he is using a freaking metal fork on a nonstick pan oh my freak. Just WOW. I can’t even believe it. This must make me the better chef because he obviously doesn’t have any skill at all if he’s using a metal fork smh
Terry Lee
Jacques Pepin is a kind, wise, and knowledgeable soul. I have learned so much from him over the years. I'm sorry about the small-minded comments about the non-stick pan and metal fork, where commenters assume it's Teflon. I have a quite durable ceramic nonstick pan that has no problem with my metal fish-spatula, which I use every morning for eggs. When faced with the cable TV food show desert, where everything is an absurb contest and one learns nothing about cooking, I turn to Mr. Pepin's videos. Thank you!
The Colonel
to me, the french omelette is totally undercooked. It's basically raw egg in the middle.
The Ginger Power Ranger
100% of people who watched this video will never make an omelette

I usially hate pretentious chefs as much as i hate being told how food should be eaten. I've just been converted.

Youssef KH
Came from Alex French Guy Cooking video hhhhh :D
I love Pepin - he's The Man - been watching him for nearly 30 years....that being said, his fork on non-stick or anodized aluminum is something the novice cook shouldn't try at home unless you have unlimited access to omelet pans via sponsors.
This is a video about how to ruin your nonstick pan with a metallic fork while making simple omelette sound like some complicated art.
creative789WorldOfTanks wot
R.I.P. teflon pan ;(
dede denver
Interesting that this expert chef is showing us how to make perfect omelets, but everyone is more interested in the pan.
that's undercooked. sorry but that doesn't look appetizing at all
the metal fork on the non stick pan gives it that authentic teflon taste in a classic french omelette.
frank sanders
Sadly, half the comments section is idiocy.\nThe pan is *not* Teflon.\nThe first omelette is *not* overcooked.\nThe second omelette is *not* undercooked.\nAdding salt early is *not* a mistake because that omelette is *not* intended to be a fluffy style.\n\n\nChef Pepin is demonstrating different techniques & notes himself that some variations are based on personal taste.
gigio giaggi
Metal fork, pan, sound......switch video.

NEVER add salt to eggs until they are almost done!
