It’s a book centered on Kansas State University along with the surrounding Manhattan area. Included within the history are recipes that have found their way through the times to where the community is now.
“Teatime to Tailgates: 150 years at the K-State Table” was written by Jane Marshall, a local author and K-State teacher.
Within the book, there are recipes, history, and pictures that came from a number of sources including Kansas State, the Riley County Historical Society, and from discoveries made by Marshall as she was putting the book together.
Marshall commented that a few of the more odd recipes within the book included the microwaved pickles and the chocolate chirp cookies, which uses crickets in the recipe.
The book can be purchased at Justin Hall, Claflin bookstore, the Discovery Center, or the historical museum.
The money made from the human ecology project will go back to student research and travel opportunities.
