The Complete Pepin

Flipping through the channels the other day and found the show "The Complete Pepin" on some random PBS channel. Like I've said before, the quality of PBS food shows vs the Food Network are night and day - or kinda like McDonald's vs Le Bernardin. Jacques is truly a master and explains things so well. This particular show was on eggs and he explains proper technique from mixing the egg yolk and white with the fork to using a push pin on the egg shell to make the perfect hard boiled egg. The thing that amazed me was his two techniques for cooking omelets (country style vs French). After watching it once, I tried making the country style omelet right away and it came out great...try to tivo this show if you can. Your cooking technique will improve tremendously...
