Flipping the Omelet

Very few people who have eaten my cooking realize that I am an expert cook. My topic today is flipping the omelet.

(Disclaimer: my omelets don't look like this)

Never flip an omelet from the center.

Always flip from the side.

If you are right-handed, flip from the left side.

If you are left-handed, flip from the right.

Never flip from out to in.

Flip in to out if you must.

Never flip from back to front or front to back.

It just confuses the omelet

Not to mention the cook.

These instructions apply to many areas of life, especially if butter is involved.

And does this in-depth advice also apply to pancakes? Will it preclude adherence to the overhead light fixture? There's less than four weeks left to practise! #needtoknow

What's wrong with just using a fish slice spatula to turn it over?

It's an aesthetic choice I think. :)

I just love this, Ken. As appealing to the senses as a painting. Thanks :-)
