My omelet reviews are primarily social commentary with a few travel tidbits and at least some mention of an omelet. I can compare omelet reviews to historical romance novels. Factual events comprise approximately 20% of the story. The remaining 80% of the historical romance novel is about droplets of perspiration and heaving bosoms. My omelet reviews are 20% about the omelet, and the rest is about the romance.
I created omelet reviews as a new form of self-expression during weekend excursions in our home state of Idaho. I’d sit in a cafe and take the time to ponder the omelet selection on the menu. I’d talk about the significance of the name of the restaurant, the decor, and the facial expressions of the customers. I’d consider how our omelet experience relates to the headlines in the newspaper that day or to whatever else is happening in our own little worlds.
On a trek through Southeast Asia, I searched for universal themes and a good omelet at every stop. Throughout our egg-centric adventures, I continued to dissect the American experience and ponder issues such as sustainability, the role of animals in the food chain and keeping it local.
People have been asking what is the direction of my omelet reviews. I have contacted David McCormick, the agent for MaryJane Butters and Pete Jordan, for help with our omelet direction. He advises to keep writing omelet reviews and weave a narrative, following the example of Pete Jordan’s recent book about dishwashing in all 50 states. Maybe I’ll eat omelet on all continents, but in the meantime, I’m working on omelet review zines. “You Can’t Hide an Elephant in an Omelet,” My Southeast Asia omelet review zine is now available!
Through writing about omelets, I hope to inspire others to consider their physical, cultural and political environment. I challenge others to contemplate how eating experiences fit within the larger societal context. We all eat. We all think. We all express ourselves. As individuals, we are all part of a larger society. Those are the components. Put them all together, and you’ve just created an omelet revolution.
