Omelet can be cooked to tailor personal taste easily. It can be folded, rolled, open-faced, or cooked on both sides. Here, we folded the eggs just so the cheese melts slightly and the fresh tomatoes are warmed just above room temperature.

The cheese we use here is Pont-l’Évêque. It has been one of our all time favorite French cheese. This squared shaped soft cheese from Normandy has been produced since the Middle Ages and is apparently the oldest French cheese still been produced.

If you enjoy soft French cheese such as brie or camembert, this one has far more flavors. It is nuttier, more smooth in texture without been too creamy or runny, and it is unforgettably delicious.

The tomatoes used here are heirloom tomatoes from our local farmer’s market. They are typically picked a lot later than the ones in the super market. This is how they tend to have more flavor and are juicier. Each different color has its own unique flavor. Slicing and cooking with them is invigorating and joyful.

There are apparently more than 3,000 varieties of heirloom or heritage tomatoes in active cultivation worldwide and more than 15,000 known varieties!

Well, here is the recipe! Go cook up this beautiful dish and enjoy!

Bon appetite!
