Welcome to one of my favorite labs to facilitate. I love to watch students flip their French omelets because they have such pride at this technical skill. It is a simple recipe with just two ingredients but it instills great confidence.
Notes correspond with an episode of Good Eats and become the recipe for the lab experience. The video, demonstration, and lab takes two short class periods or one block.
The episode goes by several names and is available for purchase ($1.99) on Amazon and Youtube.
- The Art of Omelet Maintenance
- Egg Files IV: French Flop,
- Zen and the Art of Omelet Maintenance
Links are provided in the resource.
This resource includes student notes, teacher key, and suggestions for facilitating a lab experience. Ingredients for the lab are two eggs and about one teaspoon of butter per student or demonstrator and salt. Cheese and herbs are optional.
Overall this is a great, inexpensive lab that I know your students will enjoy. Keep a camera handy for reaction videos as they flip their omelets.
