A Cookbook!

Jed had a fond love of all things food. We have a story about Jed's cooking that we tell often that involved him marinating chicken. We grill often in the summer (basically every night) and Jed wanted to marinade the chicken for our dinner that night.

As I ate it a few hours later I tasted ketchup, mustard, italian dressing... basically everything that was on the door of our fridge. Then I realized, that's what the chicken had soaked in - literally everything that had been on the door of our fridge (which included strawberry jelly). But it was good!

He always enjoyed helping with Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner and looking up new recipes of all kinds. We are a food-loving family and appreciate the importance of recipes passed down through generations. We know the love that goes into each ingredient and appreciate the stories behind each dish.

The Jedediah Thomas Smith Foundation is putting together a cookbook!
