The beginning of November is when the Giant Omelette Celebration is anticipated in America, Abbeville Louisiana. This festivity originates from France. Experts let on that Napoleon was especially fond of that dish. During one of his campaigns he stopped by for the night in the town of Bessières where local dwellers treated him to an omelette called “A Hen’s Gift.”
Napoleon was so delighted with the omelette that he ordered to collect all the eggs in the neighborhood and prepare a huge omelette for his army. It is this event that is commemorated in the omelette festivity.
You should know that the classic French omelette is made without milk and flour. Eggs shouldn’t be whipped up too much and it shouldn’t come out high.
The right omelette should be big! And it should be eaten in the company of friends and relatives. Those are the points followed by cooks from Louisiana who make an enormous Omelette of Friendship from 5,000 eggs every year – and add an extra egg with each passing year.
The Louisiana omelette is made with onion, sweet pepper, parsley, milk, crayfish tail and the Tabasco sauce. It is served on a piece of bread.
