All proceeds from the sale of Teatime to Tailgates: 150 Years at the K-State Table support college undergraduate student research and international study opportunities.

The 256-page book, named a 2014 Kansas Notable Book, is packed with history, stories, recipes and photos connected with K-State. It features many people, past and present, from the College of Human Ecology but covers the entire campus from entomology to bakery science.

Jane P. Marshall, a food journalist and communications director for the college, wrote Teatime to Tailgates for the College of Human Ecology's sesquicentennial project. “The book is the story gritty professors, itchy-footed explorers and talented graduates who changed by the world by changing how people grow, select, prepare and eat their food," Marshall said.

Recipes range from Merna Zeigler’s K-State Crown to Kansas Dirt and from Harry’s Famous Meatloaf to 4-H Apple Crisp.

The book is available for $24.95 in 119 Justin Hall and at several locations in Manhattan. To order by phone, call the college at 785-532-5500. To order by mail, see http://www.he.k-state.edu/150/teatime/orderform.pdf
