Notable chef Jacques Pepin chatted with the New York Times a few years ago about that seemingly mundane and sometimes boring chore. Technique. This is what he had to say…

“You have no choice as a professional chef: you have to repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat until it becomes part of yourself,” he said. “I certainly don’t cook the same way I did 40 years ago, but the technique remains. And that’s what the student needs to learn: the technique.”

“A cook should have knives,” he said, “that glide with quick, delicate ease through the skin and pulp of a ripe tomato.”

“People always ask me, ‘What is the best knife?’ ” he said. “I say, ‘A sharp one.’ ”

Back to the omelet… and the technique. Who better to showcase the right way than Jacques Pepin himself? Watch as he demonstrates “How to Make an Omelette.”

How many servings are in a 3-egg omelet?

A 2 to 3 egg omelet is perfect as a single serving. I find, though, it easily serves two with the added vegetables and cheese.

What tools do you need to make an omelet?

Use a heavy 7 to 10-inch nonstick or well-seasoned cast iron skillet with low, sloping sides. A small flexible heat-resistant rubber spatula is a must.

What is the best tip for making an omelet?

Have the filling prepped and ready and don’t overstuff the omelet.

Description

A simple, satisfying dish accented with fresh herbs, finished with feta, spinach, and tomato. An original fast food.


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 4 ounces (1 cup) baby spinach
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons fresh chives, snipped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 pinch salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled

Instructions

  1. Place a nonstick sauté pan over medium-high heat and melt the butter. When it is melted, add the garlic and halved tomatoes. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Add the baby spinach and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes, until the spinach is wilted. Reduce heat to medium.
  3. Beat the eggs, chives, parsley, milk, salt, and pepper until it is thoroughly mixed. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet. Stir constantly so that the eggs do not brown. When the center is still a little soft, add the crumbled feta cheese over the eggs. Fold onto the plate and serve.
