Why not have all three chefs make the same diner style omelet so you could see what technique a level 3 chef could add to what is being done?

Take my word for it, "omelets" taste much better when they are spelled correctly as OMELETTE.

I love how everyone in these comments knows more and is a better cook than a professional chef. Y’all also need to teach me how to taste food just by looking at it >_>

Absolutely barbaric!!! Nobody used milk.... I prefer a bit of oregano in it.. Always must have cheese... I don't think ham, bacon, salami, etc., is necessary.

Honestly Lorenzo's omelette looked way better then the level 3’s omelette

Am I the only one that thinks the food scientist looks like a child?
"yolk with a little bit of protein", for your interest, my teacher with a pointer, egg's yolk contains almost the same amount of protein as egg's white
Nana Ekua Addo-Fening
Level 2 looks amazing
Dafne Gorostieta
Second one looks and surely taste the best, I mean, cheese, pimiento, bacon? That sounds delicious

Nobs, take a look at my instagram to see a real omelette
Antoine Minjoz
French omelets are way easier than what chef Lvl 3 did
Everyone else: *technical things about the food, actual discussion* me: the food scientist is hot
lachlan Bastin
It’s always good to see a level 1 chef who’s job isn’t just *presses button on microwave*
Sebastian Ursachi
Lorenzo will always be the funniest and the coolest one.

the salt actually has two functions; salting out of the proteins (separating it from water, thereby evaporating only the water to minimize the amount of moisture in the final product) and to make it cook much faster

The level 3 chef, when she made her omelette it was really made like scrambled gags then she let it sit. That’s wierd I never heard of that

French chef : LOL
Shayna Brinkerhoff
I am in culinary school for baking but I have to pass off a French omelette as part of the course. Seeing the level 3 chef do it, helped me a lot. I agree with most everyone and think Lorenzo's omelette looked the tastiest though.
Steven Virden Rasmussen-Jones
There is another way that none of them show. Mine are more succulent and more like a soufle

Lorenzo's was the only one I actually would like to eat. And not just because I love bacon. That's only 94% of the reason. Barb's looked like the sort of pretentious rubbish that people who think they are much better cooks thsn they are make. I hate it when food doesn't taste like it's supposed to because a chef put too much extra in there - like the lasagna I had a while ago which had garlic, nutmeg, and about 5 other strong flavours in it. Emily's just looked rubbish - I hate that kind of ham. She seems like she could become a lot better cook with a little effort though.

level 5: make a omelet and not a tortilla. the original omelet is more similar to the omelet make by the japaneses this tortilla it was make to be a form more simple to services in the hotels -or that is what my teacher in culinary school tell us-
