Three FABIans are enjoying research visits in the USA at Penn State University in the Department of Plant Pathology and Applied Microbiology, Kay Bophela, Andi Wilson and Prof. Brenda Wingfield. Today Kay presented some of her research to the department at the regular Friday morning discussion period. Refreshments are usually provided to encourage attendance and Brenda and Andi decided to add a South African flavour to the food provided. As South African food is not available in the shops in the region they baked at home koeksisters, melktert and scones. They were assisted by Beverley Wingfield who has joined Andi and Brenda in the apartment that the two of them occupy. Both the science and the food was very much appreciated by the attendees.
