For The Love of Food

Besides being the third President of the United States and a snazzy dresser (love that coat!) Thomas Jefferson may have been one of the first 'foodies' to sit in the White House. I'm not a fan of the term, but what better way to describe a President who kept a concrete lined pond for fresh eels, and "supervised the growing of 170 varieties of fruit and 330 of vegetables, planting 27 varieties of kidney bean alone." Check out who else made the list of America's 5 Greatest Foodie Presidents in this week's Village Voice.
