Instructor: Dr. Jane Liedtke has learned to cook throughout the globe having lived in Europe and Asia in addition to the east-coast, mid-west, and west-coast of the USA. While her Ph.D. is in Industrial Management, her heart is in good cooking and she admits she’s a “foodie”. While living in Maine and Oregon, she helped her learn how to cook seafood, living in China for 10 years taught her more about using spices and sauces. A self-proclaimed “cooking class junkie”, Jane has sought to perfect her culinary skills taking classes at: Salt Water Farm, The Garlic Press, The Eight Mice, Elliot Bay Book Company, and the OSF Center for Healthy Lifestyles. Jane’s “savory crab wontons” won the 2013 Blue Crab Bay Company recipe contest.
