This simple and elegant omelet, made with Parmesan cheese and asparagus, should be served with a glass of Chardonnay and a few thick slices of rustic, peasant bread. 


  • 6 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, finely grated
  • 10 ounces asparagus, blanched
  • 1 teaspoon butter, to fry


  1. Place the eggs and the water into a bowl and whisk together until the mixture is frothy. Add a pinch of salt and pepper, whisk again to blend and then set aside.
  2. Put the butter into a frying pan over medium heat. Once the butter has melted, add the egg mixture and cook for 3-1/2 minutes until the egg has just set. Sprinkle the egg with the cheese and then add the asparagus. Season with a bit of salt and pepper and then fold the omelet in half; cook for an additional 1 minute before transferring to a plate. Serve immediately.
