Legend of the Omelet

According to legend, when Napoleon and his army were traveling through the south of France they decided to rest for the night near the town of Bessieres. Napoleon feasted on an omelet prepared by a local innkeeper that was such a culinary delight that Napoleon ordered the townspeople to gather all the eggs in the village and to prepare a huge omelet for his army the next day.

On March 19, 1994, the largest omelet (1,383² ft) in the world was made with 160,000 eggs in Yokohama, Japan.
