Jane Marshall of Manhattan will speak Friday about the diverse cuisine in Kansas in her Learning in Retirement presentation titled, “Biscuits and Bison: Exploring Kansas Food Heritage.”
Marshall is an award winning food editor now at Kansas State University, where she teaches Food Writing and Development of American Cuisine in the Department of Hospitality Management and Dietetics.
A native Kansan, Marshall holds a degree in home economics and journalism from KSU. She also is working on a food history and recipe book to help celebrate K-State’s sesquicentennial.
Prior to coming back to K-State, she worked for more than 25 years in journalism at several newspapers, including the Denver Post, Fort Worth Star-Telegram and Houston Chronicle. She worked as a reporter, co-managing editor and food editor.
Marshall is also interested in learning from the crowd. LIR participants are encouraged to bring a display sample of a traditional ethnic or Mennonite food or recipe.
Learning in Retirement begins at 9:50 a.m. in the lobby of the Wohlgemuth Music Education Center on the Tabor College campus.
Registration for the entire series of presentations is $15 per semester for an individual or $29 per couple. Admission is $4 for those who want to attend an individual session.
Because of spring break, the cafeteria will be not be serving lunch.
