From the back cover:
"Dining with the Washingtons is a lushly illustrated and well-researched compendium of historical essays and recipes - just the sort of definitive work I would expect from those who safeguard Mount Vernon. What I didn't expect, as I turned the pages, was that these words and images would accrue to yield such an intimate portrait of eighteenth-century American life. Here I learned, for instance, that George Washington preferred breakfast of hoecakes, smeared with butter and honey, and that Martha Washington was partial to globe artichokes. By telling stories about what and how the Washington family are and the ways they entertained, the scholars at Mount Vernon and culinary historian Nancy Carter Crump have sketched a compelling portrait of the nascent American culinary identity."

"Dining with the Washingtons is a scholarly romp unlike anything we got in history class. The book is a beauty. It brings George Washington to us - vibrantly alive - with the sort of storytelling that keeps pages turning. Yet the best part is that this book makes food an important part of Washington's story. Academics have largely overlooked food, but not the scholars at Mount Vernon, bless them. They know that food is the common "tell", linking all of us through time."
