Sample the flavors of produce from the Monticello grounds, cooked using techniques and recipes dating to the garden’s heyday. Join food historians Paula Marcoux and Dr. Leni Sorensen in the historic Monticello Kitchen as they transform the best of the early September harvest into surprising and delicious dishes that deserve to be restored to American tables. Learn period live-fire methods that you can bring home to your own fireplace or grill, and be inspired to think about next year’s garden in a new — or, better yet, old — way! $55
