If you really want to learn how to cook, then you need to practice the concepts taught in this lesson. We've compiled some "edible exercises" along with some supporting recipes that will help reinforce what was taught in this lesson.
Your first task is to make a plain omelet by following the key steps in this lesson. Make sure you have a good pan and pay particular attention to identifying the various stages of the eggs setting (e.g., gaps between the eggs and the egg running into the gaps). When the eggs are just set, turn off the heat, spread out the egg as shown in the video, let set for a minute and then slowly fold and roll the omelet out onto a plate. Remember, if it sticks to the pan, you may need a new pan, so don’t get discouraged.
Next, make an herb or filled omelet of your choice (unless you're really hungry, you might want to do this on another day).
Once you’re comfortable making omelets, it’s time to test your skills in front of some friends or family. Invite some guests over for a Sunday brunch at your house and set up an omelet bar. Pre-cook the items with high moisture content, such as zucchini, mushrooms and peppers. Set out a variety of cheese and let your guests place their orders.
Lastly, it’s time to take your newly-acquired skills and teach someone how to make their own omelets. By teaching others, this will strengthen the entire learning process for you. Carefully teach your student(s) how to make an omelet, and explain the critical steps during the process. In particular, have them focus on the point where the eggs are beginning to set and when to identify the perfect point where they are fully set (e.g., no egg runs into the gaps). Spread some culinary love by sharing what you have learned.
