À vous faire baver d’envie

omelette large

We prefer the simple standby a bit undercooked chez nous, but who knew this side of runny was a respectable request for an omelette in France, and one with its own appellation? Next time you’re in a French resto and hungry for the same, ask your server for an omelette baveuse. And try not to dwell on the literal meaning of baver. Think mouth-watering instead of slobbery, as you watch Laurent Mariotte demonstrate his surefire cooking method. Un fouet (that’s a whisk, not a whip) or une fourchette to break those yolks? That’s the 10,000 Euro question.
