[George Washington] ate heartily, but was not particular in his diet ... a special passion of the President's was nuts."

President Adams drank a large tankard of cider every morning as soon as he got out of bed (p. 55)

A gourmet, Jefferson ate lightly ... he preferred vegetables to meats and was particularly fond of olives, figs, pineapple, and light wines.

Abe grew up on the frontier, where he ate very plain food, partly for economic reasons, partly because of the frontier tradition. Corn dodgers, cakes made of coarse cornmeal, were a staple.
