There is no other place in the United States where you can experience authentic early American culinary history. City Tavern was the social, political, and economic centre of late 18th-century Philadelphia. Called the most genteel" tavern in America by John Adams, it gained fame as the gathering place for members of the Continental Congresses and the Constitutional Convention, and for officials of the early Federal Government. With more than 300 tempting, simple-to-make recipes and full-colour photography, City Tavern will help home chefs and history buffs alike recreate the same dishes enjoyed by George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin. Featuring traditional favourites such as West Indies pepperpot soup, roasted duckling with chutney, Martha Washington's recipe for chocolate mousse cake, and Thomas Jefferson's own recipe for sweet-potato biscuits, this book's recipes are sure to entice adults and children alike, while simultaneously providing them with a wealth of fascinating American and culinary history! More than just a cookbook, City Tavern is a treasury of American history.
