After the lectures and discussions were over, and the library
closed, we often gathered somewhere on Thursday evenings, for wine
and crunchies and more informal conversation. Carlos Piar and Frank
Sicius, who had brought their families, each entertained us at their
on-campus apartments; another evening we had pizza at the group
house, and the last Thursday we had a "group-cook"
at the Institute Director's home.
Each Institute participant chose a cooking partner, made a list of
ingredients for a dish that could be prepared in under a half-hour,
and the Institute director did the shopping. Then we all assembled
and each team prepared it's dish in the big kitchen.
On the last night of the Insitute, the Haverford College catering
staff feted us with dinner and even a
"theme cake." based on the
singing" which came up in Dave Bruce's presentation about
camp-meetings in the American south. This is also the same theme that
the group decided to use for our
T-shirt, to remind ourselves of the
importance of hearing all the various "voices" in our classrooms..
Below are recipes for some of the dishes we prepared at the
group-cook. We're still open to additional recipes!!
