Darcy Maulsby will share images from and talk about her book, A Culinary History of Iowa. From Maid-Rites to the moveable feast known as RAGBRAI, Maulsby tells the remarkable stories behind these Iowa originals. The book features Iowa specialties ranging from classic Iowa ham balls and Steak de Burgo to homemade cinnamon rolls served with chili. Maulsby helps operate a Century Farm in Calhoun County near Lake City and Yetter, where she also runs her own marketing/communications company, Darcy Maulsby & Co. She has covered agriculture and business for nearly 20 years and has worked with a number of leading ag organizations, including Syngenta, the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, and the National Pork Board.
