Abbeville’s Omelette Celebration cooks 5628 eggs in two skillets

The Junior Chevaliers cook eggs on their smaller skillet.

slideshow

There will be two different skillets being used to cook eggs today in downtown Abbeville for the 28th Annual Omelette Celebration.

This year’s celebration is in honor of premier grand maitre Cecil Hebert, who passed away earlier in the year.

The celebration gets underway this morning at 9 a.m. with an official mass at St. Mary Magdalen Church.

The arts and crafts show will start at 9 a.m. and continue until 5 p.m.

The procession of the chefs and eggs gets underway at 1 p.m.. The small parade will go around Magdalen Square and end up in front of the Court House, next to City Hall. The actual cooking of the eggs will start at around 1:30 p.m.

The “Chevaliers” (the people with large white hats) will begin preparing the ingredients for the omelettes. The confrérie will knight Sheila Friedland, Ray Trahan and Matthew Devenport before cooking.

What many do not realize is that there will be two omelettes being cooked Sunday instead of one.

While the Chevaliers will be cooking the giant omelette, next to them will be a junior omelette being cooked.

Junior Chevaliers, (youths) are sharpening their skills on a smaller skillet in hopes of one day being promoted to Chevaliers when they get older.

The juniors sharpen their skills by cooking 600 eggs on a four-foot wide skillet. At least four juniors stand around the skillet and stir the eggs.

“They do a great job and it is great training for them to take over the giant omelette as they advance in the organization. We are very proud of them,” said Arlene White of the Omelette Celebration.

What KitchenAid Learned on Debate Night: Every Tweet is Forever

An attendee tweet on a laptop as Stone, co-founder of Twitter, Inc., gives keynote speech in Los Angeles
Phil McCarten / Reuters

An attendee tweets on a laptop as Biz Stone, co-founder of Twitter, Inc., gives the keynote speech at the 140: Twitter Conference LA in Los Angeles September 22, 2009.

The head of U.S.-based appliance company KitchenAid surely missed much of the presidential debate Wednesday night, forced to do damage control after a tweet published on the brand’s official account contained a disparaging remark about President Obama’s late grandmother. After Obama mentioned his grandmother, who helped raise him and died just days before the 2008 election, @KitchenAidUSA sent the following message to its 25,000 followers — now deleted, but widely preserved in hundreds of retweets.

The tweet sparked a massive backlash, and KitchenAid swiftly issued an apology tweet:

Cynthia Soledad, KitchenAid’s senior director of branding, then took control of the KitchenAid account to issue a follow-up tweet that sought to “personally apologize” to the President and his family, as well as to “everyone on Twitter” for the “offensive tweet.”

In an email to tech website Mashable, Soledad explained that an employee had intended to tweet the message through a personal account, but mistakenly broadcast it via the corporate handle.

KitchenAid deleted the original tweet and apologized within eight minutes, according to SimplyMeasured and as reported by Mashable. Minutes are an eternity on Twitter, where retweets can spread like wildfire, especially during major news events — and the widely watched presidential debate at the University of Denver saw more than 10 million tweets sent while the two candidates were on stage.

KitchenAid isn’t the first brand to get burned by social media. In March 2011, a tweet from Chrysler used inappropriate language in describing Detroit drivers. It was deleted immediately, but the employee behind the message was fired just as quickly.

(MORE: Obama and Romney Debate: The 9 Best Tweets)

It is difficult for Twitter users to simply delete ill-advised tweets because of how rapidly they can be disseminated by your followers. Sysomos Inc. research reveals that 92.4 percent of all retweets occur within the first hour of a published tweet’s existence, and 96.9 percent of all replies also happen within the first hour. Tweets can be preserved in the form of screenshots and passed around long after the original message has been removed, and social media search engines like Topsy keep logs of public tweets — even those that were deleted. When U.K. journalist Guy Adams faced repercussions this year for tweeting the personal e-mail address of NBC Olympics President Gary Zenkel, his gaffe could still be found on Topsy after his account was shut down completely, according to Bloomberg News.

Still, perhaps the adage that any attention is good attention holds true; both KitchenAid and Chrysler both saw major boosts in their Twitter followers after their mishaps — though perhaps the new followers are just hoping to see another tweet blunder.

Restaurant review: Eight delicious reasons to chow down at Ocho Kitchen …

Talk about love at first bite.


OOOOOOH, looks yummy

OOOOOOH, looks yummy

— Today’s Gay List Daily is brought to you by the Number Eight. Or Ocho, to be more precise.

When we first heard about the newest Tex-Mex restaurant to open in Dallas, we yawned a bit. But while our mouths were wide open, somebody slipped in a tostada topped with white shrimp ceviche and we were suddenly intrigued.

But our love affair doesn’t stop there. Herein, we proudly present eight reasons to love Ocho Kitchen + Cocktails.

1. It’s not really Tex-Mex. Filled with Santa Fe influences, the menu features unique twists at every turn.

2. Chef Eric DiStefano. The brilliant master of Santa Fe cooking brings the style and sophistication of his famed Coyote Cafe in New Mexico to the heart of Texas.

3. The lobster hot cakes. Though not (yet) an official menu item, they’ll probably make them for you if you ask. Possibly the best thing we’ve eaten in weeks.

4. Enchiladas in skillets! Everybody’s favorite cheese-and-tortilla meal arrives in a piping hot cast iron skillet. Great presentation, delicious enchiladas.

5. Eric’s New Mexican meatloaf. Veal, pork and beef blended with green chiles, baked and set atop cheddar mashed potatoes. Add chorizo gravy and prepare to swoon.

6. Tres leches cake. If you’ve got room after eating dinner, and that’s a big IF, the super-moist tres leches cake is among the best in town.

7. 46 tequilas and 5 mescals. From simple margaritas to elegant sippers, they’ve got all the best tequilas without going overboard in choices.

8. 8Bar upstairs. Great space. No kids. Late service. Perfect.

2011 Cookware Series, Part I

Hurricane Sandy Can’t Stop Haddonfield Halloween Traditions

Lee and Rosie Hymerling made certain they were ready Friday afternoon to welcome hundreds of visitors into their kitchen for homemade, hot doughnuts, a trick or treat tradition they started when they moved to Haddonfield 27 years ago.

The tradition was delayed this year after Hurricane Sandy roared ashore Monday tearing a path of death and destruction through the region. It toppled 18 massive trees in this 2.5-square-mile borough, but caused no reported injuries. Mayor Tish Colombi and other borough officials decided to stick with a rescheduled trick-or-treating time Friday instead of heeding a recommendation from the governor to hold trick-or-treating next week in the wake of the storm.

Children and parents look forward to the doughnut house on Halloween. At times, the line for doughnuts extends from the kitchen to the front sidewalk. No one minds the wait, this is a Haddonfield tradition. One ghoul said “you haven’t trick or treated in Haddonfield if you haven’t had a doughnut.”

The Hymerling’s have friends who volunteer to help each year. While regulars know the drill, the volunteers welcome new visitors and help extend the Hymerling’s hospitality. As soon as you enter the home, you are greeted by two helpers who offer a soda or bottle of water. You can then choose from a variety of candy as you wait in the doughnut line. 

Two electric skillets are used to make hundreds of doughnuts each Halloween. One volunteer cuts the dough, while two deep fry the donuts. Once the doughnuts are done, they are dipped in sugar and served hot to trick or treaters who wait patiently for the next fresh batch of doughnuts. No dough is wasted, doughnut holes are made which are perfect for little hands.

When trick or treating hours are over, Lee Hymerling takes count of how many visitors came through. This year, over 700 people stopped by to visit. Some visitors were experiencing the doughnut house for the first time. Cassidy Hilburn and Abigail Poppke called themselves “newbies” as their friends, Pina Onorator, Madison Perna and Katy Koontz guided them through the Hymerling’s home. Known as the destination house on Halloween, for visitors new and old, the Hymerling’s define hospitality. 

Doughnuts are just a small part of Rosie’s identity. Many know Rosie from teaching kindergarten at Tatem Elementary for over 30 years, others know her for her charitable causes including the Markeim Art Center and leader of the kindergarten choir at the annual Haddonfield Flag Day celebration.

When trick-or-treat hours ended, for those who wanted to enjoy more Halloween fun, the Historical Society of Haddonfield held an encore performance of its haunted house to make certain all Haddonfield traditions were enjoyed.

Better late than never.
