Renowned Chef Deborah Madison Visits Campus Club

Chef Beth Jones was pleased to host James Beard Award Winning chef and cookbook author, Deborah Madison, for a discussion with the students from Chef Jenny Breen’s class, “A Cooking Approach to Food Systems.” Madison was on campus for the Friends of the Libraries Annual Celebration, and the Kirschner Lecture. Madison shared her experiences as a vegetarian chef in the late 1970’s and the challenges of opening one of the country’s first vegetarian restaurants, Greens, which is still in operation in San Francisco today. Other attendees included Meghan Kocher, Curator of the amazing Kirchner Cookbook Collection, U of M Organic Farm Coordinator Courtney Tchida, and Mecca Bos-Williams, food blogger for City Pages.
