They talk about Preview, Practice, Process. You can watch the lesson and think about it but the key really is practice.
I had been watching and learning but not putting the information to actual use. Now I have the one hand egg break down and made my first “omelet.” I snuck ahead and watched the omelet exercise. The next morning I hit the kitchen and I did it, not so pretty, but on the first try, it was an omelet just in time to hear my 4 Year old daughter say “No Omelet!”
Kind of a let down to have good and bad news. Bad because she didn’t want MY OMELET, but good because I got it. And she recognized what I had made as an omelet. Nice, right?
On her redo of just eggs, I got it just right and managed the “flip,” even though it was over the sink to be safe. I think the key was working with a fork to keep it unstuck and being a bit rough with the product like Teaching Chef says. The second try was better too. I think I timed the introduction of the eggs better. The butter visual clue was frothy and something I had not considered before. My daughter loved the eggs and even asked for more.
