Jesuit secrets

My sister just sent me the above photo of a book I had given her - The Secrets of Jesuit Breadmaking by Rick Curry SJ - and the cornbread she made from a recipe within it :)

Br. Rick Curry is an interesting guy - he's a Jesuit of the New York Province and besides writing a cookbook he's also interested in acting and has started a National Theatre Workshop for the Handicapped. He himself is missing an arm, but he hasn't let it stop him from becoming an actor - he was in an episode of the tv series Monk, and has a page at the internet movie data base.

Hi Richard,

I just had some of the cornbread - interesting recipe with sweet potatoes and pecans too :)

From my experience with the NY Jesuits, I don't know if they're good at cooking (though my friend Steve whips up a great cosmo), but they eat very good food prepared by others. We try to get invited to the Jesuit house on 16th street for dinner as much as possible.

I believe it must have been Rick Curry who I saw on a cooking show a year or so ago. He was demonstrating how to make bread. I wonder if his cornbread is as good as mine. ;-)

What is the Jesuit house like? I've never been to a religious community.
