DINING AT MONTICELLO paints a gorgeous canvas about what kinds of foods, what the standard fare looked like, early in the 19th century at the home of Thomas Jefferson. Sometimes it was a heady, elaborate feast for guests, including President James Madison of Montpelier. A lot of food was grown in Jefferson’s garden plots. Some for the palette is familiar and some is not. They were interesting times, bereft of any processed food, anyway.
