Before delving into our Mac & Cheese recipe, it’s worth sharing more information about the origins of the dish.

Jefferson had his enslaved chef, James Hemings, trained in French cuisine while he lived in Paris.

Although he didn’t want to pay for an elite French chef, he was able to have some of his slaves trained in French cuisine.

James Hemings was already a talented chef, so Jefferson brought him to Paris.

A favorite dish of both rich and poor

Thomas Jefferson was delighted with how his chef, James Hemings, prepared his Mac & Cheese recipe.

In order to gain his freedom, James Hemings taught his brother Peter how to make this dish in his place.

In the early 1800s, Jefferson hosted a state dinner featuring a macaroni pie, which is believed to be what we call macaroni and cheese today.

It didn’t take long for it to appear in cookbooks and become the favorite dish of both the rich and the poor.
