Marian Burros speaks to Dave DeWitt in "Thomas Jefferson, 'Founding Foodie'"


“All the stuff Jefferson was doing at Monticello is just having a rebirth now,” said David DeWitt, a food historian and the author of Founding Foodies: How Washington, Jefferson and Franklin Revolutionized American Food.

Mr. DeWitt will speak Tuesday, August 28 at Monticello, focusing on Jefferson as a lover of food, recipe writer and “ardent supporter of sustainable farming.”
