3/28/2018 - The Meaning of Omelets and Life: What I Learned from My Mom, the Queen of Omelets

On Saturday, April 28, 2018 from 12-1:30PM in the Kingsley Room of the Southbury Public Library, John Finn will give discuss and demonstrate how to make the perfect omelet.

As the author of The Perfect Omelet: Essential Recipes for the Home Cook, Simsbury resident John E. Finn will give a talk 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.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Southbury Public Library. Like all Southbury Public Library programs, this presentation is free to attend and open to anyone regardless of town of residency, but space is limited and registration is required. Please call 203-262-0626 ext. 130 to register.
