Cooking for great cause

For the third straight year, Lakeland Associate Professor of Biology Paul Pickhardt will make the kitchen his laboratory.

Pickhardt, one of 24 “Men Who Cook,” will prepare a Senegalese mafe—a meal of lamb-shoulder braised in a rich groundnut sauce, topped with lemon-infused parsley that he will serve over a quinoa pilaf for about 300 guests at the popular Safe Harbor fundraiser.

The event, set for Saturday, April 7, at Blue Harbor Resort, is open to the public. Reservations must be made by March 15. Visit the Men Who Cook website for information on how to reserve a spot at the dinner table.

Safe Harbor is a domestic abuse and sexual assault shelter in Sheboygan, and proceeds from the Men Who Cook event help fund this important local resource. Pickhardt, who will cook alongside his brother, Peter, is again appreciative for Lakeland University covering the cost of the food.

“Safe Harbor is an incredibly important resource for affected families in our area,” Pickhardt said. “Typically, all of the guests who attend the Men Who Cook event enjoy the food, and it would be great to see some Lakeland faculty and staff there, as in previous years.”
