Two Basic Recipes...

...Everyone Should Be Able To Do Well...

Instead of me attempting these, I invited two of my closest friends over to show you. As you can read by the Wikipedia entries below...these guys know what they're talking about...so pay attention. 

Jacques Pepin teaches the classic way to prepare an omelet. 

In addition to the Daytime Emmy Award won with Julia Child, Pépin has received two of the French government's highest honors: He is a Chevalier de L'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres (1997) and a Chevalier de L'Ordre du Mérite Agricole (1992). In October 2004, he received France's ultimate civilian recognition, the Légion d'honneur.

Thomas Keller teaches us how to properly prepare a simple roasted chicken.

When he mentions "family meal", he is referring to a meal a restaurant will cook specially for the staff of the restaurant while they prepare for the days service.

He and his landmark Napa Valley restaurant, The French Laundry in Yountville, California, have won multiple awards from the James Beard Foundation, notably the Best California Chef in 1996, and the Best Chef in America in 1997. The restaurant is a perennial winner in the annual Restaurant Magazine list of the Top 50 Restaurants of the World.[1]
In 2005, he was awarded the three star rating (highest) in the inaugural Michelin Guide for New York for his restaurant Per Se, and in 2006, he was awarded three stars in the inaugural Michelin Guide to the Bay Area for The French Laundry. He is the only American chef to have been awarded simultaneous three star Michelin ratings for two different restaurants.
