The Food Section Gals

As a current Times contributor and lover of most things historical, I strongly suggest going to this talk:

Betsy Balsley, Donna Deane, Rose Dosti and Barbara Hansen:
The L.A. Times Food Section Gals

speaking on
The Heyday of the Food Section at the
Los Angeles Times

Saturday, April 10th, 10:30 am at the Los Angeles Public Library
Mark Taper Auditorium, Downtown Central Branch
630 W. 5th St.
Free and open to the public

With over 100 work years of combined experience, the team of Betsy Balsley, Donna Deane, Rose Dosti and Barbara Hansen produced the Los Angeles Times Food section in its heyday beginning in the late sixties, into the 1980’s. During this era the food section had 40 to 50 pages every week, with popular columns such as Culinary SOS and Borderlines and dozens of original recipes. Recipes were prepared for publication in a magnificent test kitchen. The LA Times Food Gals will reminisce about this extraordinary era of food journalism, the resources they had to produce a great food section.
