Foodways Texas Names an Executive Director

Join me in congratulating Marvin Bendele the newly named Executive Director of Foodways Texas. Bendele was appointed at a Sunday morning board meeting in Austin. He is completing his doctorate in American Studies at UT Austin–food history is his area of expertise.

Co-author of Republic of Barbecue, a book about Texas barbecue from University of Texas Press, Bendele comes from an Alsatian-Texan family that settled in Castroville in 1848. He has been making homemade venison sausage since he was a small child.
