Award-winning food writer Jane Marshall of Manhattan will present a program Friday in Tabor College’s Learning in Retirement lecture series titled “Biscuits and Bison: Exploring Kansas Food Heritage.”
Marshall teaches food writing and development of American cuisine in Kansas State University’s Department of Hospitality Management and Dietetics. She holds a degree in home economics and journalism from K-State. She also is working on a food history and recipe book to celebrate K-State’s sesquicentennial.
Before returning to K-State, Marshall worked more than 25 years at newspapers including the Denver Post, Fort Worth Star-Telegram, and Houston Chronicle as a reporter, co-managing editor, and food editor.
Marshall is also interested in learning from the crowd. Anyone with a traditional ethnic or Mennonite recipe to share is invited to bring a display sample.
Learning in Retirement meets in the lobby of the Wohlgemuth Music Education Center. The program begins at 9:50 a.m. Friday. Registration for the entire spring semester costs $15 for an individual or $29 for a couple. Admission is $4 per person for a single session. Because of spring break, the cafeteria will not serve lunch.
