Firecrackers, family and delicious food: Check out 'Teatime to Tailgates'

Submitted by Chelsi Medved

The summer season has arrived and the beloved Fourth of July holiday is right around the corner! This holiday is full of excitement as families and neighborhoods across the U.S. gather to celebrate the birth of our country. During this special remembrance, hearty and sweet food plus a little historical conversation really brings people together.

The College of Human Ecology has published a book that speaks to these very events — "Teatime  to Tailgates: 150 Years at the K-State Table." Authored by Jane P. Marshall, K-State alumna and professor, long-time educator and former college communications director, this book combines K-State history with famous and notorious recipes.

This wonderful compilation includes recipes from campus, Aggieville, the Brookville Hotel and a few infamous Kansas City locales. The accompanying stories date back to K-State's beginnings in 1863 and run through 2013 when K-State celebrated its sesquicentennial. "Teatime to Tailgates" is full of wit, a little bit of humor and mouth-watering formulas to transform the simplest of foods.

How about trying out the Dinkel Family Bierocks? This recipe creates 24 bierocks — enough for a party and is sure to hit the spot. Add a tasty Green Papaya Salad as a cool, refreshing side and wow everyone with a traditional and forever delicious Emma Chase Cherry Pie. If the heat is turned up, you might accompany your slice of pie with a large scoop of Call Hall ice cream.

To get your hands on a book for you, your friends or your folks, fill out a PDF order form or visit 119 Justin Hall on K-State's Manhattan campus. The hardback book is $24.95, plus shipping and handling, if needed. All proceeds go to College of Human Ecology undergraduate student research and international study opportunities.
