Bessières omelette to feed an army
It’s not every day that you see an omelette large enough to feed an army. But in the town of Bessières in Haute-Garonne, they certainly don’t do omelettes halfway.
Every year on Easter Monday, around 10,000 people gather to make a giant omelette, made with 15,000 fresh eggs, a four-metre pan, 40 cooks, and extra long sticks.
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.
