02.10.14 |

Lebanon Valley College hosts Scott Barton for a unique food presentation on April 16 at 7 p.m. in Mund College Center’s Lehr Dining Hall. This event, “Vem pras praias!: Baianas do acarajé and the politics of the cultural imaginary” will combine lecture, short film, and a cooking demonstration as part of the College Colloquium dedicated to the theme of “Revolution.” This program is free and open to the public.

Barton, executive chef and culinary consultant, was raised in Norwalk, Conn. A natural cook from a young age, his mother got him interested in cooking at home. He has been involved in the restaurant industry since the age of 14, starting as a dishwasher and a waiter.

After studying at both Peter Kump’s Cooking School and the New York Restaurant School, he continued his education working in New York at the Odeon Restaurant in Tribeca. He spent his time in New York learning all the stations of the kitchen, including pastry.

Barton’s career accomplishments include cooking on the set of Spike Lee’s “School Daze,” aiding in the opening of Tom Cat Bakery, opening his own restaurant “Metro,” and helping to open several well-known restaurants in the San Francisco Bay Area.

In addition to his culinary accomplishments, Barton has worked as a consultant for various corporate and multinational food groups, is a member of the CCD (Chef’s Council), and has done extensive research on intricate culinary subjects.

In the past two years, Barton has been working as a consultant, aiding restaurateurs in the desires to create new menu selections and to improve upon their existing ones.  He is also in the process of completing his Ph.D. in Food Studies at New York University.

Scott Barton’s presentation is a part of the 2013-14 College Colloquium dedicated to the theme of “Revolution,” a year-long integrated series of guest speakers, performances, exhibitions, films, and academic courses that will consider the ideas of revolution and evolution as competing yet interdependent ways to describe the changes that surround and shape human life.
