Essential Recipes for the Home Cook
John E. Finn
Book cover for The Perfect Omelet by John E. Finn
A charmingly illustrated ode to omelets with step-by-step techniques and 100 recipes

The omelet is at once simple and complex, delicious at any time. John Finn’s mother was certainly a fan—she spent years searching for the perfect technique and has passed her knowledge, and her passion, to her son. Here Finn provides instructions for four master recipes—the classic French o melet nature , an American diner omelet, a frittata, and a dessert omelet—and delectable variations on each, including:

  • Omelet Bonne Femme (potatoes, bacon, and onion)
  • Many Mushrooms Omelet
  • Tortilla with Caramelized Onions and Serrano Ham
  • Chocolate Soufflé Omelet

Omelettier John Finn leaves no eggshell unturned and provides readers with everything they need to find their way to their own perfect omelet.
