EMIRATES passengers can watch the Rugby World Cup 2019 live onboard

Brian from New Lynn

Fans of the All Blacks - or any other team - who have travel booked with Emirates over the next couple of weeks will no longer have to worry about missing any of the Rugby World Cup 2019 action. The Dubai-based airline is screening all games through its own in-flight, 24-hour sports channel. Using a network of satellites around the world, the RWC game broadcasts are picked up by special receivers built into 177 of the airline's fleet, including all of its Airbus A380 aircraft. The airline offers live sports to all passengers, alongside broadcasts from BBC News, Sky News, CNN, CNBC and NHK World. Sport24 is a channel specifically set up to deliver sport to airlines and cruise ships in partnership with Panasonic Avionics. If you believe you may be flying during one of the games, then check with the airline or wherever you booked about the live service being available on your flight, and remember to dress in your supporter gear!

Recipe: Classic Omelette

New Zealand School of Food & Wine

Omelettes are essentially a version of scrambled eggs but they have been left to rest and coagulate so that the pan side is firm. Some people prefer firm omelettes, others like to have the egg a little runny so that it retains that soft, silky consistency also known as baveuse.

3 Eggs
1 pinch Salt
½ tsp Butter, or a splash of good quality olive oil

1. In a bowl whisk the eggs. Add salt.
2. Heat the butter in a frying pan (non-stick is easier) until it is just beginning to brown and has a nutty smell. Let it run around the pan so that it is well coated.
3. Pour in the egg mix. With your rubber spatula, constantly lift and scoop around the edges and cut through the middle of the egg mixture to cook evenly.
4. If you are adding a filling to the omelette, it should be done at this point.
5. Roll or fold the omelette by folding one half on the other, or fold one third on the middle third and then roll on the remaining third.

Prior to folding, you can add a filling to lift the flavour of the omelette.
Classic combinations include:
Saute mushrooms
Blanched spinach (with cream)
Diced ham
A combination of finely chopped herbs such as chives, chervil, parsley, tarragon
