History's Just Desserts

Exploring American History through Desserts and Their Makers

A Piece on Dolley Madison’s Food Politics in American Food Roots

Leave a comment

Yes, I’ve been slacking a bit with the blogging.  Between conferences, cooking classes, an upcoming symposium, and, oh, that new job, I’m feeling a little swamped. But I did have a chance to explore how food figured in Dolley Madison’s politics thanks to the good folks at American Food Roots.

About that symposium, I’ll be speaking, along with others, at the Food History Symposium at The Lyceum in Alexandria, Virginia, next Saturday, May 3.  If you’re in the area, I’d love to see you there.

And do look for a piece on cookbook author Eliza Leslie and women’s labor in the nineteenth century soon.
