series: Taste Of History

David Rittenhouse taught himself Newton's Laws by the age of 13. Soon after, he became an expert clockmaker, and then a Professor of Astronomy. Rittenhouse created an orrery, an elaborate machine to track the movements of the sun, the moon and the stars. We'll see Rittenhouse's orrery, and learn about his life as Chef Staib prepares a Crown Roast of Pork with Madeira Sauce along with Sweet Potatoes and Apples in his honor.
