Monticello is the autobiographical masterpiece of Thomas Jefferson designed, redesigned, built, and rebuilt for more than forty years.
The expansive Shop at Monticello presents an extraordinary collection of items available for purchase. In the Thomas Jefferson Visitor Center, courtyard level, the Shop is open daily. The book section offers more than 250 titles—including one of the most comprehensive selections of Jefferson-related books available anywhere—and comfortable reading chairs. Other departments of the store contain exclusive Monticello reproductions, educational games and toys, home décor pieces, Virginia wines, gourmet food products, posters and prints, collectibles, and souvenirs. The Shop also features an indoor/outdoor garden space, open year-round, where you can buy Monticello's popular historic plants and seeds, harvested from plants grown at Monticello, as well as a wide range of gardening accessories. An additional, smaller shop—on the mountaintop at the southern end of Mulberry Row—provides a convenient selection of gift items, beverages, and snacks.
Serving Size: Eight 6 oz. servings
Melt chocolate in a metal bowl set over a pan of simmering water (or in a glass bowl in a microwave at 50% power for 3-5 minutes), stirring frequently.
Transfer mixture back to the saucepan and cook over moderately low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture coats the back of a spoon [when drawing a finger across the spoon you can see a line]. Do not let boil. Remove from heat and add vanilla and nutmeg.
Whisk custard into chocolate until smooth. Cool to room temperature.
Beat remaining 1 cup cream and one teaspoon sugar in a bowl with an electric mixer until it just holds stiff peaks. Fold one fourth of cream into chocolate custard to lighten, and then fold in remaining cream gently but thoroughly.
Spoon mousse into eight 6 oz. dessert glasses and chill, covered, at least 6 hours or overnight. Garnish with berries, if desired.
From 10AM to 3PM
A two day public event highlighting the history of chocolate in America from the Lewis and Clark expedition to chocolate and its journey west.
Cumberland Gap National Historic Park is the first great gateway to the west. Guests can follow the path of the buffalo, the Native American and the pioneer as they traveled this route through the mountains and into the wilderness of Kentucky.
Modern day explorers and travelers stand in awe at this great gateway and the many miles of trails and scenic features found in the park.
