Lorenzo made a pretty good country style omelet, even rolled it out of the pan nicely. The level 3 chef wearing all that chef stuff sure didn't look to professional to be honest, a good omelet making process doesn't include whipping the egg into oblivion, adding herbs to the eggs, and rolls out of the pan nicely.
