Description: The fine food and gracious hospitality that characterized George and Martha Washington's 18th-century entertaining is reflected in The Mount Vernon Cookbook, a collection of "receipts" (recipes) assembled by the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association, the private, non-profit organization that has owned and operated the historic home of George Washington since 1858. The receipts, many of which have been passed down through several generations, feature ingredients that were available to 18th-century cooks but use modern methods of preparation and cooking.
