Item Description

Dinner at Mr Jefferson's by Charles A Cerami.

Three men; five great wines; and the evening that changed America.

The Constitution was two years old and the United States was in serious danger. Bitter political rivalry between former allies and two surging issues that inflamed the nation led to grim talk of breaking up the union. Then a single great evening achieved compromises that led to America's great expansion. This book celebrates Thomas Jefferson and his two guests, Alexander Hamilton and James Madison, and the meal that saved the republic. In Dinner at Mr. Jefferson's, you'll discover the little-known story behind this pivotal evening in American history, complete with wine lists, recipes, and more.

"A fast-paced narrative of an event well-known but never told so brightly" - Publishers Weekly
