$101 vs $8 Omelet: Pro Chef & Home Cook Swap Ingredients | Epicurious
Expert chef Frank from the Institute of Culinary Education and home cook Emily are swapping materials and hoping for the best! We gave ketchup ambassador Emily $101 worth of ingredients and Frank's recipe notebook, then asked her to recreate his omelet as best she could. To lend a helping hand, food scientist Rose dialed in for a brief tutorial and pep talk. On the other side, Frank received a meager $8 worth of supplies and tried to improvise his way up to gourmet. Who’s got the huevos to succeed under these mixed up circumstances?

    8 dollars for an omelet ? It's still way too much. In india an omelet will worth like 1 dollar and it'll be delicious I guarantee that

    Why not just add a splash of some extremely rare wine and call is a $2000 omelette while you're at it? Most of the $101 was definitely that jar of caviar she used a tiny scoop of.

    I feel like just throwing salt while it is being cook is a bad idea since it won't disperse perfectly. Some part will be fcking salty.

    In India we get a raw egg for 6 rupees... Then we fry it. And eat it. In less than 10 rupees. And mind you... 1 dollar is about 70 rupees. So... Yes
