Trifle Dessert

During President Washington’s time, it was a difficult task to harmonize aristocratic exclusiveness with republican simplicity.  On occasion as many as ten or fifteen extra guests, invited or uninvited, were at their impressive table.  The First Lady greeted all of her guests; they bowed or curtsied respectfully and were seated.  There were amazing quantities of food with a typical dinner consisting of soup, roasted or boiled fish, meats, fowl and more.  This President even entertained at breakfast, thus starting the breakfast business meetings. He preferred simple hearty meals over the fancy ones, but offered a generous delicious selection of dishes to his guests  His food choices illustrated the nation’s dependence of local food sources, but you can find those little touches of his English heritage in his selection of wine, puddings, and cream trifles.
