Culinary Arts Faculty Presents Session for Consumer Science Group

A member of Pennsylvania College of Technology’s hospitality faculty recently presented a session at the Pennsylvania Association of Family & Consumer Sciences annual conference in Scranton.

Chef Paul Mach, assistant professor of hospitality management/culinary arts, offered two sessions to the association’s members, providing tips for teaching about – and cooking with – a large variety of grains and dried legumes. The well-attended sessions included samples, recipes and other handouts, and a demonstration. Among grains featured in the recipes are quinoa, kamut and black forbidden rice.
