TV The French Chef 1962
Julia Child awakened America to the pleasures of “good” cooking with her cookbook ‘Mastering the Art of French Cooking’ and her television show ‘The French Chef'.
In Elizabeth David's, 'An Omelette and a Glass of Wine', she tells the story
of the famous ‘Omelette Poulard’. La Mère Poulard's omelettes were so renowned that M. Robert Viel, a Paris restaurateur and collector of cookery books, asked her for the secret recipe. She replied:
“Here's the recipe for the omelette: I break some good eggs into a bowl, I beat them well, I put a good piece of butter into the frying pan, I throw in the eggs and I shake it constantly. I'll be very happy, sir, if this recipe gives you pleasure”.
