This morning author Rosana Y. Wan joins Jane to talk about her book The Culinary Lives of John and Abigail Adams and her experience working as a park ranger at the Adams National Historic Site in Quincy, Massachusetts. Rosana will discuss the traditional New England fare that the Adams ate while living in Massachusetts and the international influences that their travels brought to their food as they became revolutionaries, diplomats and the First Family of the U.S. Born in Hong Kong and raised in various places in the United States, Rosana Yin-Ting Wan attended University of Houston-Downtown in Houston and later graduated with honors from Suffolk University, Boston, with a degree in history. Since relocating to Boston, where she currently lives, she has pursued her passion for studies in the history of the American Revolution.
