Thomas Jefferson and the Mammoth Cheese - Wilton Historical Society

On March 26, 1804, President Thomas Jefferson attended a party  
at the Senate and lead a diverse crowd in consuming an enormous
loaf of bread dubbed the mammoth loaf. The giant bread was baked
to go with the remnants of an enormous block of cheese.

Two years earlier, a group of Baptist women from Massachusetts
had sent Jefferson a 1,200- pound hunk of cheese in gratitude
for his support of religious tolerance.
