A Thing of Beauty at BOUCHON

imageIs there anything more beautiful in food than a fluffy/creamy, fine grained and silky, color-of-the-sun French omelette?

As with all things exquisite, this mixture of eggs, butter, salt, pepper and cheese is deceptively simple, and much harder to pull off than you might suspect. (We’ve practiced for years and can get the color and grain right, but achieving the proper shape and fluffiness is a bitch.)

Lucky for us, the good chefs at BOUCHON are minutes from our house, whenever the urge for a taste of eggy perfection hits.

Best of all, the price of this perfection is only $17, and one of the cheaper things on the menu.
