A timely Madigan Library Forum – “Harvest Cooking:  Fall Into Soup,” featuring Chef Paul E. Mach, was held at lunchtime Tuesday on the  Bookmarks Café patio. Joined by School of Hospitality students and recruiting library personnel as “kitchen” staff, the assistant professor of hospitality management/culinary arts served up an autumn bounty of ingredients (amply seasoned with his signature blend of know-how, wit and showmanship).  Attendees not only enjoyed “Chef Paul’s Home Chowder” on the premises,  but were given a copy of the recipe for when another “soup day” is in the forecast.
