                I think you should let each of them taste the food from all the 3 levels, let them review then let the specialist review

                        This hotel I've been to 3 times is 2 hours from my home and a great place to go to Theres a river between it that you can talk or walk *ALONE* And the hotel was ☆☆☆☆ so the place is good, the beds are comfy and the pillows is REALLY fluffy And the place where you eat breakfast is really good And everytime we go there I NEED to always eat a omelette

                            Barb's omelette was yuck. Emily is how we usually go for things and Lorenzo's was the best. He was enjoying all along and created something interesting

                                      The level 3 chef is wrong about the whisking - side to side is the best method, scientifically.

                                        Ok but Lorenzo’s omelet looked and sounded the best tasting. (Like bacon and cheese?)

                                              This is all extremely overcomplicated. Bacon/ham (your choice), cheese, and bell peppers. That's all you need. It's an omelet you're not on Gordon Ramsay's kitchen hell

                                                            somehow i liked emily's omelet more than the professional chef's omelet. Lorenzo will always come first with his bacon

A real omelette separates a good chef from bad. A good chef should be able to make a plain omelette like a fluffy dream. Only addition is butter or olive oil to cook. Salt n pepper or a bit of cheese or some mushrooms. Plus the eggs are not entirely overworked as in every single example. Lightly mixed , no milk etc, quickly cooked - in your cherished omelette pan (not mentioned). Any omelette full of extras is a Tortilla which is not a bloody omelette.
