Omelette Festival

      Since 1985, residents of Abbeville (Louisiana, USA), have been celebrating Giant Omelette Festival during the first weekend in November in.

      It is said that Napoleon Bonaparte himself was a passionate admirer of egg omelette. According to an old legend, when Napoleon and his army were traveling through the south of France, they decided to stay for the night in a small village of Bessieres. There Napoleon was treated to a local delicacy called “hens’ gift”.

      Having tasted the “gift” Napoleon was so delighted that he ordered to gather all the eggs in the village and to cook a huge omelette for his army. To commemorate this event the residents of Bessieres have been arranging an omelette festival ever since.

      According to cookery experts, an omelette is a distinguished snack. It was adored not only by Napoleon, but by other powerful rulers too. Take, for instance, Austrian Emperor Franz Joseph, who called an omelette "a wonderful gift of God."

      As the legend has it, Franz Joseph was treated to the heavenly "gift" for the first time when he was twenty years old. Until then, he had never heard about any omelette, as the latter was considered the food of the common people, and it was never included in the royal meal.

      So, one day, Franz, while hunting, was horrified to notice that he strayed away from his entourage and got lost in the depths of the forest. Forcing his way through the thicket, Franz finally saw a light and soon came to a tiny peasant hut, where he was received with all hospitality. The hostess swiftly cooked for Franz Josef a festive omelette. She thoroughly mixed milk, eggs, flour and sugar. After that she poured the mixture into the pan, gave it a slight fry, and then, with a sharp knife, she quickly cut up all the stuff into thin strips, browned them, sprinkled with powdered sugar and served it to Kaiser, together with plum compote.

      Franz Joseph liked the tasty dish beyond measure, and on getting back home, he ordered the court chefs to prepare the "peasant snack" every day. And ever since, a sweet omelette has been known as "Kaiserschmarrn", which in German means "Kaiser stripes".
Connoisseurs claim that this type of omelette should be very-very large and it is best when enjoyed in the company of friends.

      This precept is followed sacredly by cooks from the U.S. state of Louisiana. Every year they create an enormous Omelette of Friendship from 5000 eggs, 6 liters of oil, 25 quarts of milk, 10 kilos of greens and treat their guests to it.скачать dle 10.5фильмы бесплатно
