Right before Thanksgiving break, Andrea Borghini, assistant professor of philosophy, teamed up with Holy Cross Dining’s Dietitian Kathy Egan and Chef George McHugh, for a hands-on seminar about bread making. 

The first-year students, who are all part of the Montserrat Natural World Cluster, got to mix, roll, and knead bread, as part of a seminar about the philosophy of food, titled “I Am, Therefore I Eat.” The course explores how specific dietetic decisions reflect a detailed and comprehensive image of a person or a community.

Prof. Borghini says this is the first time the class has cooked together.  “I chose bread making because it represents family or a group of people and brings a community together,” he shares.

John Gavin, S.J., assistant professor of religious studies; Christopher Ryan, S.J., grants associate; Rev. Gregory Lynch, S.J., assistant chaplain; and Rev. James Hayes, S.J.,  associate chaplain.

Recognizing that students stay up late to study during finals period, administrators at the College of the Holy Cross volunteer each semester to serve the scholars breakfast late into the night. On Sunday May 13, Fr. Boroughs surprised students as he donned an apron and dining services cap and served them bacon and eggs!

Don’t miss out on the late night fun! The menu includes popular breakfast items, such as scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage links, assorted bagels, Belgian waffles and topping bar, assorted juices and nightly specials. See who is serving tonight.
