This year’s event will also feature recipes from the kitchens of U.S. Presidents who were in office during the Prices’ lifetimes.  Guests can learn how our country’s “founding foodies” shaped American cuisine and taste dishes enjoyed by some of our first Chief Executives and their households, including Thomas Jefferson’s Macaroni & Spinach Bake, James Hemings’ Fritters a la Chantilly, and George Washington’s Chile-Spiced Pecans.

One is on my list and wish I could attend more. How about yours? We are blessed to have so many people sponsoring and sharing about our city all the time.
