Culinary Historian Leni Sorensen will tantalize with stories of the cooks in Jefferson kitchen, who prepared, canned, and preserved food for the Monticello household. Using historical recipes from Mary Randolph’s The Virginia House-wife (1824), Leni will demonstrate how to make curry powder, the essential ingredient for curry chicken and rice, an international dish popular at elite 19th-century dining tables.  Leni also will guide the class in creating a thick and spicy Tomata Marmalade of their own, using green tomatoes from the Monticello garden. The class will then enjoy the curry dish and fresh Monticello vegetables. 9:30 am, Thomas Jefferson Visitor Center.
