Mystery Box Challenge | Recreating Famous Signature Dishes: Omelette Arnold Bennett

DIY 和生活百科

“SURELY an omelette can’t be that difficult to make?” These were the famous last words of Barry Taylor as Ben challenged him to make an Omelette Arnold Bennett in the way that it was once created in 1929, by Jean Baptiste Virlogeux, a chef from London’s Savoy Hotel. Be prepared for lots of flapping and kitchen chaos!

    Time pressure is an abomination to cooking..... removes all interest and learning ability. Think of how much you could have educated both Barry and us without all the flapping and time pressure rubbish.

    Fun fact: contrary to mayo, hollandaise emulsifies perfectly if you just dump all the ingredients in at the start and just whisk over simmering water. No need to drizzle the melted butter.

    So.... I bought this cookbook based off the guys' recommendations.... Could not be a more rediculously posh/useless cookbook. 80% of these recipes are purely the author's sole opinion that they're "essential recipes." So insanely, minutely regional. Maybe 7 recipes will be recognizable by the average person. $75 CAD for a book that honestly will not add anything approaching what I'd hoped to my repertoire.

    Weirdly, I can see this becoming Barry's personal signature "oo la la" dish: now he knows he can do it, and he's got an idea about how much needs to be done, and doesn't have a time limit to worry about, I can see him making this again and again, and getting really good at it.
