Miscellaneous Notes
All of this by no means tells the whole story of monk-professor-staff-cooks at St. John's. Br. Paschal Brisson, OSB, director of Campus Ministry, taught a course in cooking a few Januaries ago. He can cook anything that approaches edibility, cook it very cheaply and make a delicacy of it. He is also an expert at salvaging disasters, as when he turned in tended, but uncooperative, beignets into delicious fruit dumplings. (SJU Alumni Magazine - 1976)
