DOLLEY & JAMES MADISON - ENTERTAINING AT MONTPELIE
Artichokes, Veal Kidney Dijonnaise and Hoppin' John and Cornmeal Fried Catfish are prepared.
Dolley Madison was the toast of Washington, hosting her famous "squeeze" parties at the White House first for Thomas Jefferson, and then for her husband, James. When the Madisons left Washington, they continued these traditions at Montpelier, their lavish home in Virginia. Chef Walter throws a party, Dolley-style, making ice cream with Dolley and cooking up a feast, which includes Artichokes, Veal Kidney Dijonnaise, Hoppin' John and Cornmeal Fried Catfish for their guests.
