Mrs. O’s kitchen interview

On Sunday, we got a peek into the new First Kitchen as the White House prepared for its first official dinner.  Apropos, perhaps.  An eclectic sampling of Obama family favorites (not on the menu that night) are reported to include “mean batch[es] of fries,” waffles for breakfast and foods grown locally with sustainable farming practices.   It sounds like that kitchen, said to be “tiny,” turns things out with the panache and payload of a swanky cruise liner.  Bravo.  I guess you have to when it’s the leader of the free world’s sustenance at stake.  The article Marian Burros filed nicely sums up the in-kitchen press event which, it seems, is also another first.  So is it bay or sea scallops you prefer, Mr. President?

  1. I am enjoying waking up while reading your blog. Thanks for including the NYT article. It’s great the Obama’s are promoting local foods and bringing students into the White House kitchen.
