Annette Poulard



Monsieur et Madame Poulard ran a Hotel at the Mont Saint Michel. Annette Poulard became famous for her omelets, so famous, that she put up a notice warning people to avoid copies of her recipe. Her omelets were eaten by thousands of people including King Léopold II of Belgium. Georges Clemenceau was a regular visitor.

I have a french chef staying with me at the moment and I have requested that he cook me an omelet.

Not only will it once more be a delight to eat but there shall be the thrill of seeing it cook and then magically roll up without any apparent interaction beyond a gentle shake...

Few shall ever have the pleasure of eating a perfect omelet...

Coline: I struggle with omelets too. I hope that you enjoyed yours.
