Thomas Jefferson is well known for his penchant for wine (he planted one of the first American vineyards at Monticello). But did you know he was also a reverent consumer of beer, English muffins, and ice cream? Museum educator Maite Gomez-Rejón is leading a series of gallery tours dubbed “A Taste of Art” at the Huntington Library this fall. Each gallery tour will be followed by a cooking class featuring recipes from Jefferson's larder. The class later this month exploring Jefferson's potager days in Paris is already sold out, but space is still available in the “Jefferson in Monticello” class on November 7.

A Taste of Art: Jefferson in Monticello: Huntington Library, Saturday, November 7, 9 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., 1151 Oxford Road, San Marino. For more information or to register, call (626) 405-2128. Museum members: $75, Non-members: $85.
