The traditional giant omelette was baked on Monday in Malmedy, in the East Cantons, but due bad weather, fewer eggs were used than planned.

The tradition has been going on for a quarter of a century: every 15 August, a gigantic omelette is baked in a pan with a diameter of 4 meters in Malmedy. This time around, the rain was a spoiler, says Bénédicte de Bournonville Mathy, president of the brotherhood of the giant omelette.

“We were planning to make an omelette with 10,000 eggs, but we made it with only 7,000 eggs due to the weather.” he said.

According to the initiators, the event attracted just over 3,500 spectators, each of whom was able to taste a portion of the omelette.
