The Culinary Lives of John and Abigail Adams: A Cookbook by Rosana Y. Wan

It's interesting and fun to learn about history by reading about the food that important people from the past ate. John and Abigail Adams liked to garden, grow many vegetables, and eat fresh and fairly plain food. They ate such English foods as roast chicken, roast turkey, custard, mince pies and cherry pie, for example.

I like this sort of food too, so when I get back from my travels I hope to try some of the recipes and post pictures. Unfortunately, I can't grow the 'veggies', as we call them in Australia.

Rosana Wan has filled the book with fascinating information about the famous couple's meals and activities, and it is full of scrumptious pictures of the foods.
