FIRST YOU BUILD A REALLY BIG FIRE
IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET.
The fire is ready and waiting for the giant skillet in Abbeville, Louisiana.
My friends Kim and Beverly are ready to cook the Giant Omelette
Hi, my name is Sherry aka Peekaboo and I'm glad you chose to stop by and read about the Giant Omelette Celebration. It is a lot of fun and I hope to see you there one day. If you would like more information on the Celebration please email me. You will find the link to send an email to me at the bottom of this page. Just scroll down and click on Sherry Romero. Now on to the story and pictures.
In 1983, three members of the Greater
Abbeville/Vermilion Chamber of Commerce left
Louisiana and attended the Easter Omelette
Festival in Bessieres, France and were knighted
the first Abbeville Chevaliers (a fancy word for
chef). They returned home with the determination
to bring Abbeville closer to its French heritage
by hosting an omelette festival and join the
sisterhood of Bessieres, France; Dumbea, New
Caledonia and Grandby, Quebec, Canada. Since that
time Frejus/St. Aguf, France and Belgum have
Cooking 10,000 plus eggs in the giant skillet in Frejus/St. Agulf, France. My best friend, Eva Dean, is the woman in the center.
Abbeville's Giant Omelette Festival is truly international. Each year representatives of the cities in the sisterhood join us on the first
full weekend in November and help us cook a 5,000
plus egg omelette. We induct one person from each
city into our part of the international Confrerie
Some of my friends from Bessieres, France.

I have the honor of being among the first Chevaliers in Abbeville. I have also been
knighted as a Chevalier in Granby, Quebec, Canada
and Frejus/St. Aguf, France. In those two
countries we cooked 10,000 plus egg omelettes.
There was a whole lot of cracking going on but it
sure was fun. My goal is to visit the other
cities in the Confrerie and help them cook their
omelettes - and to think I don't really like
eggs!!! The thing I enjoy most is the making of
new friends, learning about their countries and
culture and sharing that same knowledge about our great state and country when they visit us.
