Editorial Reviews

Review

"When it comes to the pleasures of the table Jefferson possessed extraordinary, undisputed taste. Oddly, however, this aspect of his nature is mentioned only tangentially by his biographers, if at all.... The most comprehensive work yet compiled on Jefferson's gastronomic adventures is Marie Kimball's Thomas Jefferson's Cook Book.." -- Craig Claiborne, New York Times



"A concise and possibly definitive essay on Thomas Jefferson's contribution to American cuisine takes 26 pages in Thomas Jefferson's Cook Book.... All of the recipes are intelligently adapted for today's kitchen by Marie Kimball." -- Travel and Leisure



"While Jefferson didn't cook, he did love eating and made it a habit to collect recipes during his frequent visits to France.... The historical information makes fun reading." -- Washington Post

A good look back into Jefferson's time and at some of the French recipes he brought back from Paris. Most of the recipes are quite tasty today.

Years ago I clipped the ice cream recipe from a magazine-my kids loved it when I made it. Over the years and several moves , it was lost. Needless to say-when I saw the cookbook listed--I had to have it. It has lived up to my expectations and I look forward to trying many of the other recipes in it. I especially enjoyed the history portion of the book!

What I thought I was getting was a series of recipes taken from the account books of Thomas Jefferson. What I got was updated 20th century recipes for the modern reader. They are okay though there are mistakes in techniques and ingredients but for someone not into pure food history one should pass by.

When asked to give a speech on Thos. Jefferson's Cookbook, I thought, Onrecipes" Upon getting the book and reading it, I found it most fascinating and a whole new look at Jefferson. Even the recipes are enlightning and thanks to Jefferson we have macaroni and vanilla.

It was great to see how differently they made food and what was eaten during that time. Although I won't be trying a lot of their recipes, I did enjoy the read.

I ordered this cookbook for my daughter-in-laws who love to cook. They will get it for Xmas, and I'm anxious to hear their reactions for the recipes.

It's going to be a Christmas gift, and it's nice, but I thought it would be a little bit bigger and have more recipes from France in it than it does.
