Did you Know?

Abbeville's Giant Omelette grows each year just like the friendships between its participating countries. How you ask? Each year there is one egg added to the "5000 Egg Omelette". This year there will be 5030! Wow!

The Omelette is served to the public free of charge, so come early, you wouldn't want to miss out. The Omelette really turns out to be scrambled eggs.

Interesting Facts and Tips
Getting a New Skillet

The new skillet arrives.
After putting in its time, the original skillet used for cooking the Omelette began to show signs of wearing. On the Omelette's 20th anniversary it was decided to introduce a new skillet. Thanks to Don Begneaud, owner of Begneaud Manufacturing, Inc. Lafayette, Louisiana and his company employees this became a reality.

On October 10th, 2004 the 12' diameter stainless steel skillet arrived. Founder of the Celebration, Premier Grand Maitre "Bichon" Emery Toups inspects the new skillet. In the background "Maurice d' Chevalier" looks on. This wooden cutout depicting the dress of the Omelette chefs is displayed downtown each year compliments of our own Peter Dehart. It is planned to put the old skillet on permanent display in the future.

Starting an Omelette
It all begins with sand..and a good fire
Maitre d' fer Elray Schexnider tends the fire

Did you know the 5000 egg Omelette is cooked on a real wood fire.
Maitre d' feu Elray Schexnider gathers just the right wood all year and puts it to good use on Omelette Sunday. He and his crew get up very early that morning to spread the sand generously brought by the city of Abbeville Fire Department. the sand is shaped in the form of a "saucer" with the wood placed directly in the center. After getting a good fire going, it is carefully tended through out the morning to get just the right even temperature.

For a first hand preview of the Matire d' fer at his fire starting best, join us with your cup of coffee on Sunday morning in front of the Courthouse at 7:30 a.m. to get a good seat and watch the show.
