Another interesting fact: legend has it that Napoleon Bonaparte was served his first omlette by an inkeeper in Beziers when he was travelling through Southern France. Apparently, he was so impressed by this culinary delight that he ordered the townspeople to gather all the eggs in the village to prepare a giant omlette to feed his army the next day. The tradition of making a giant omlette in the town still stands today, with an annual omlette festival.
