"From Jefferson's Table" is a collection of stories and recipes from eight fascinating generations descended directly from Thomas Jefferson at Monticello. The book covers American style cooking through the first 250 years of our country's remarkable evolution.
A rare compilation of recipes, passed down from my Grandmothers and Mother, acted as impelling testimony to the value of culinary creativity as a comfort to family life through the inevitable crisis that challenge each generation. The new edition includes so many delicious dishes that are fun to make and provide a taste of American style from it's early years until today.
Amazing stories of survival through crisis, like moving thousands of miles away from home in covered wagons to establish a new life. An account of struggling through the Civil War, a husband fighting somewhere unknown, by one great, great grandmother, with many children while pregnant, can inspire and energize a new generation with extra courage and resourceful, delicious menus & recipes. Each generation is portrayed through a creative culinary event with superb menus and complete recipes. There is the quintessential dining experience at Monticello, an afternoon tea from Virginia's New Kent, an after the theatre supper, the ultimate country Christmas Dinner, the lavish Luau, a Brunch in an historic Montecito Adobe and more.
