Quick Mushroom Truffle Omelette for Two

The beautiful thing about eggs is you can eat them for any meal – breakfast, lunch or dinner. Egg dishes are generally quick to make, like this Mushroom and Truffle Omelette recipe.

For the best result, muster the patience to allow the black truffle to “sit” with the eggs. By storing your truffle with the eggs in an airtight container for two (2) days, this allows the truffle fragrance to permeate the eggs.

Petra Carter is the smiling face behind the cooking school Le Pistou. The cookery school is centrally located in Uzès, right next to the tourist office and steps away from the main boulevard. The one-time garage was wholly transformed into a bright, lofted space equipped explicitly for cooking classes.

This lady - previously the food-editor of Irish Tatler - has developed several options for classes at le Pistou Cookery School. There are workshops and multi-day classes where students dive into the magic of cooking with flavours of the South of France.
