This week’s Cook the Book Fridays recipe from David Lebovitz’ My Paris Kitchen – Omelette aux fines herbes – is one I don’t think I’ve ever actually intentionally looked up a recipe for. I mean, who needs a recipe for an omelette, right? Well interestingly, I’m including one in my kids’ French cookbook (because it is a classic) and it’s one I’ve had a lot of difficulty writing. How do you write instructions for something so simple?
The only recipe I had really looked at in depth (until this one!) is Julia’s which uses words and illustrations because I was interested in seeing how she put something so simple into words but apart from that I can’t really remember setting out to find a recipe for one.
