Remember when the L.A. Times food section was a bulky read, with lots of recipes and lengthy features? Here's a chance to hear from four of the women who made it happen each week. Betsy Balsley, Donna Deane, Rose Dosti and the awesome Barbara Hansen will talk about the Heyday of the Food Section at the Los Angeles Times. From the late 1960s into the '80s, 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 and the resources they had to produce a great food section.
