Corsican Omelette with goat’s cheese


  • 3 large eggs
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 15 grams butter
  • leaves from 4 good-sized sprigs fresh mint (shredded)
  • approx. 100 grams thick slice of a chevre log


  1. Beat the eggs and season with salt and pepper. Melt the butter in a frying pan approximately 25cm / 9 inches in diameter.
  2. When the butter has melted and is bubbling, throw in most of the shredded mint, saving some for sprinkling on top at the end. When it has sizzled in the butter and become vibrantly green, pour in the beaten eggs and tip the egg around the pan. Crumble the cheese over the omelette and cook, lifting the sides and swilling the pan around to let any runny egg cook in the heat underneath.
  3. When the top of the omelette looks nearly set but still gooey, fold into three lengthways – in other words, fold in two sides, leaving a strip of white-blobbed omelette facing up in a strip in the middle – and slide on to a plate. Sprinkle with the reserved mint and eat.
