I am happy to report that, after much struggling, I have figured out the secret to making a perfect omelette a la my friends Jacques and Julia. It is not the amount butter, or the type of eggs, or the motion of your wrist. No, the elusive secret is a good non-stick pan! For an anniversary present my lovely mother in law bought me a serious ceramic non-stick pan. I had been eying it ever since I read a post about it on one of my favorite blogs. This thing rules. I don’t think glue would stick to it. Perhaps Jacques and Julia would say I’m cheating but I am just too thrilled to care.
