A Gorsuch already is going down in Supreme Court history.

A book that came out this month examines on the favorite dishes and history of the high court, “Table for 9: Supreme Court Food Traditions & Recipes.” The Associated Press called it “part history book, part cookbook.”

The AP reported:

Louise Gorsuch, the English-born wife of Justice Neil Gorsuch, shared her marmalade recipe. Gorsuch, the court’s newest member, by tradition serves on the committee that oversees the court’s public cafeteria.

She devised her recipe for orange marmalade because, “When I moved to America, I found the marmalade in the stores too sweet, so I started making my own,” she says in the book.

Fox News profiled Louise Gorsuch in April.

The British native comes from a religious upbringing and holds degrees in both history and philosophy. She met her future husband while she was attending graduate school at Oxford. He was a law student there and they met on a blind date in 1995.

A romance blossomed and a year later the couple married at St. Nicholas’ Church in Henley-on-Thames in Britain. They eventually moved to Virginia, where Louise worked before starting a family. Their first daughter Emma was born in 1999, followed by Belinda in 2001.

Michael Trent, the best man at the couple’s wedding, told Fox News, “The wonderful thing about Louise is that she can be just as comfortable looking beautiful at the White House or in her wellies shoveling horse manure by the barn.”

The couple moved from Niwot in Boulder County to the nation’s Capitol this year when President Trump nominated the judge with deep Colorado roots.Neil Gorsuch, of course, is a Colorado native, the son of former state Rep. Anne Gorsuch Burford, who President Reagan named as EPA administrator.

He had served on the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver since 2006.

The book is available on the Supreme Court Historical Society website for $22.95.
