The Meaning of Omelets and Life: What I learned from my Mom, the Queen of Omelets
Simsbury resident John E. Finn, author of The Perfect Omelet: Essential Recipes for the Home Cook talks about the process of writing his definitive book on the iconic omelet, full of practical wisdom about omelets, cooking, and life. He will also demonstrate omelet preparation and invite audience members to try it out and enjoy samples.
John is a professionally trained chef and Professor Emeritus of Government at Wesleyan University, where he taught academic courses on culture and cuisine and hands-on, practical courses on how to make omelets of every kind. He also demonstrates the art of making omelets to a wide variety of civic groups and organizations. He is a graduate of the French Culinary Institute and holds degrees from Princeton University, Georgetown University Law Center, and Nasson College. Finn’s scholarship and writing in the field of food studies lay at the intersection of food, recipes, and politics. He lectures frequently on food and popular culture.
