Future Programs

CHEW programs include presentations by speakers, lively discussions, foodie quiz contests, and delicious demonstrations. Past speakers, through their research, have brought us such eclectic topics as the history of the birthday cake, the origins of Door County fish boils, the saga of corn, Native American fish foodways, food pyramid debates, and traditional Serbian cookery.

Please join us 7:15 pm at the Goodman Community Center, 149 Waubesa St, Madison, WI.

November 5, 2014– “”The Importance of Duncan Hines,” presented by Louis Hatchett.

Duncan Hines (1880–1959) may be best known for the cake mixes, baked goods and bread products that bear his name, but most people forget that he traveled across America discovering restaurants and offering his recommendations to readers in his best-selling compilation Adventures in Good Eating. His biographer, Louis Hatchett, will explore the life and legacy of a savvy businessman, American icon and an often-overlooked culinary pioneer.
