On Saturday, Sept 16 I will be creating an historic Mary Randolph themed dinner party to be presented at my house. It is going to be a food adventure for me. This is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time and the time is right. All the foods are from my favorite book The Virginia House-Wife! The 4-course meal will be for 6 to 8 people – a perfect sized group for good food, good talk, and ‘bites’ of history.
