FRENCH CATERING SERVICE GROWING
'Moveable Feast' races ahead
By FANNIE WEINSTEIN
Rye bread with prosciutto, fruit
kabob, and chocolate mousse is not
typical box lunch fare for most Univer-
sity students. Such delicacies, however,
are available near campus at the
Moveable Feast, a unique local
Besides box lunches, the Feast caters
for weddings, picnics, and recently
went into the restaurant business. Its
founders, Pat Pooley, Ricky Agranoff,
and Pat Korten-wives of University
professors-started the business in 1977
as a cuisine shop.
"WHEN WE started, we just wanted
to get open," Pooley saidl. "We knew we
wanted to do something, we just didn't
know it was going to be with food."
The original shop is located in
Kerrytown, near the farmer's market.
In 1979, the women moved to a new
location on West Liberty and started a
catering service, which was expanded
into, a restaurant serving lunches.
The founders say they have dedicated
themselves to quality and creativity.
"WE SIT down and try to think of
things that have never been done
before," manager Katie Curtis said.
"There's a lot of opportunity for ex-
perimenting and crestivity. In most
restaurants, there's no room for that."
The Feast features such house
specialties as Coulibiac, layered
salmon with a puree of spinach baked in
brioche pastry. All means are served
"Moveable Feast" co-owner Pat Pooley takes-a catering order at the Feast's newly opened restaurant on
with a sourdough french bread which,
according to Agranoff, took her seven
years to develop. A moderate lunch
menu is also available.
The catering service, besides
bringing French cuisine to the Univer-
sity community, has also served such
visiting celebrities as former President
Gerald Ford, actor Vincent Price, and
even royalty, whose names were not
divulged, the founders said.
THE WOMEN'S dedication to serving
inventive meals comes from inter-
national training. Pooley attended the
famed Cordon Bleu cooking school in
London. Agranoff has studied in Fran-
ce, and with well-known chefs such as
The owners' training has instilled a
sense of pride concerning the Feast's
offerings. "We don't compromise on
anything," Agranoff said. "There's no
false modesty here. We all think what
we're doing is good."
"It's very Difficult to maintain
quality and compete with the bigger
places," Pooley added. "We try to do as
much as we can do well. We don't do

Leonardo exhibit mixes art with technology
By SCOTT STUCKAL
The differing -worlds of art and
technology come together in a Leonar-

the University's Museum of Art.
The exhibit, sponsored by the
Michigan Technology Council and
several local firms, focuses on the 15th

hours, Konschuh said.
No summer classes will be cancelled,
Konschuh said, although some will be
rescheduled to weekdays. To save fur-
ther money, classrooms will not be air-
conditioned for the few courses held on
Fridays and Saturdays.
WCC administrators will discuss

proposed budget cuts is scheduled to be

Theexhibit also will help highlight Ann
Arbor's potential as a technological
center, according to William Ince of the
Michigan Technology Council.
"THE EXHIBIT adds to the total pic-
turC of Ann Arbor as a place where high
technology firms can find cultural en-
tertainment as well as technological
opportunity, said Mario Cutruvo, a
spokesman for the Bechtel Power Cor-
Cutruvo said the show originally
lacked the technological theme and was
intended only for West Coast appearan-
ces. After deciding it could "make a
statement" about Ann Arbor's potential
as a high technology headquarters,
Cutruvo arranged to bring a special
showing of Leonardo's works to cam-
"We couldn't have gotten it (the
exhibit) without the University's
prestige," Cutruvo said.
The exhibit will be accompanied by a
film series May 10 and May 23 at the
Michigan Theater and a June 5 sym-
posium by the University's Medeival
and Renaissance Colloquium.
