The iconic omelette for my generation is the one in the Ipcress File. When Len Deighton wrote the omelette scene he managed to combine his understanding of food writing, spy stories and London. A life long fan of Deighton and Michael Caine all I can say of my omlettes is I use the same type of mixing bowl. The pan was bought by my father in Leon Jaeggi's, Tottenham Court road, over 40 years ago.
