Note also that it is the PAN that is turned, not the chopsticks or tongs. 

I did note that! In the video I used as a guide, the chopsticks turn the omelette.

I read all these threads about these fabulous dinners people have at home, with photogenic, obviously labor-intensive food, and legendary bottles.   I can't speak for anybody else on this board, bu

Yes.  But it looks to me that the other way might be easier.

See, I have a wooden salad fork.  But on mine, the tongs are so big they can't generate those desirable small curds.  It's really no better than a small spatula.

Jacques uses the back (rounded side) of a table fork.

I came into some Boer goat meat!  As Orik has said, this stuff is THE SHIT.  The greatest goat of all time.  That's right:  the GOAT goat.

Something else, isn't it? 

I'm going to try and make whole Boer kids in the new place. Sub-saharan cochinillo.

NOW he tells us. 

It's not exactly NOW. I feel like I've seen nearly identical videos from him that date back at least a decade, one in which he made three different omelettes. I can't replicate his method to save my life. See also...

Easier, but not easy enough for me, apparently. I got closer, but nothing I'd call a success. Will try again tomorrow.

I may just be bad at omelettes.

Worth noting that like many/most other cooking gurus, his method is not consistent, evolves, chosen by ingredients.    He uses a totally different method when  incorporating heavier ingredients into his omelette, like (see his video on) mushrooms.    Same metal fork, tines used to pull perimeter of omelette toward center, repeat, until cooked.
