I have no idea how many it will feed. 5000? At 3 eggs per omelette, that math makes sense to me!
Well around 10 000 people turned out in Bessieres, France yesterday to watch one of the coolest Easter traditions I’ve ever seen! How did this tradition begin? Well according to this article…
This rather bizarre tradition is in recognition of when Napoleon Bonaparte and his army once spent the night near the town. After eating (and evidently very much enjoying) an omelette made by a local innkeeper, Napoleon ordered the townspeople to gather all the eggs in the village to make a gigantic omelette for his army to eat the next day.
I want to be in a cool club like the “Giant Omelette Brotherhood of Bessieres” one day! Love it! Hope you had a blessed Easter!
