Learn about Florida's Food Editors from the 1950's to 60's!

Join Dr. Kimberly Wilmot Voss for a special presentation titled, Florida's Food Editors: Cooking in the 1950s and 1960s. Throughout the 1960s, Florida’s food editors introduced innovative food products and described new dishes. They shared recipes as they interacted with the home cooks of the communities they covered. They reviewed restaurants, judged cooking contests and wrote cookbooks. As more women entered the workforce, the food editors  wrote articles about convenience foods along with the homemade techniques from their home economics roots. This lecture will include stories about Jeanne Voltz, Virginia Heffington, Grace Barr, Dorothy Chapman, Ruth Gray and Jane Nickerson.

Kimberly Wilmot Voss, PHD, is an associate professor and area coordinator of Journalism at the University of Central Florida. Join Dr. Kimberly Voss as she takes you behind the scenes of the lives of women editors in the 60's.
