The right kitchen gear, for an easy and fluffy omelette, is:
• a high heat source
• one non-stick 20cm pan
• an aerosol cooking oil spray (or a knob of butter)
• a sturdy silicone spatula as the egg flipper
• a good Pyrex bowl
• a good whisk

The right ingredients are:
• one or two fresh eggs per person, and no more than three eggs to a pan
• pinch of salt
• pinch of pepper
• water 1 tablespoon per egg
• a teaspoon of olive oil (extra virgin) no cream we are healthy here!
• 2 teaspoons of chopped chives or parsley

The right mixing method:
• Crack the eggs into the bowl
• add water
• add olive oil
• add salt and pepper
• add green herbs
• whisk enthusiastically

The right cooking
• heat pan
• spray when hot [Caution it can flame] or add butter
• add mixture
• as the edges cook, lift and push towards the middle with the spatula
• work the mix a little to keep it fluffy and let the uncooked mix run to the outside
• lift underneath omelette to stop sticking
• when the omelette is nearly cooked through and lightly browned on the bottom,
• slide the omelette to one side and lift and flip half the omelette over the other half
• slide onto a plate
