favorite food

I don't know that offhand, but I can recommend a website that has all of
that kind of information.  Try the Thomas Jefferson Memorial
Association's website at:

That website has pages on a day in the life of Monticello, and I'm sure
they can give you information on the food.  I know that Jefferson ate
mostly vegetables, with very little meat, but little more than that.

I am just finishing reading the 20 vol. set of the writings of Thomas Jefferson, and I recently got through reading letters from the time period you mention. I do not recall anything that would suggest what he ate while in Amsterdam, and I am sure that the answer to your question could only be wild speculation unless there was a diary or other memoir by some person who met him and possibly had dinner with him that might record such data. I do not have access to such materials.
