White House state dinner menu
Politico.com/blogs ^ | 10/13/11 | Karin Tanabe

Posted on 10/13/2011 4:15:42 PM PDT by ColdOne

There’s no celebrity chef tasked with whipping up Thursday night’s state dinner honoring President of South Korea Lee Myung-bak, but the menu is still mouth-watering. For the dinner held in the East Room, Executive Chef Cris Comerford and Pastry Chef William Yosses will serve the following, according to the White House via POLITICO 44:

First Course Butternut Squash Bisque, Honey Poached Cranberries, Virginia Cured Ham, Pumpkin Seed Praline, Crème Fraiche

Second Course Early Fall Harvest Salad on Daikon Sheets, Masago Rice Pearl Crispies, Rice Wine Vinaigrette

Main Course Texas Wagyu Beef, Orange-Ginger Fondue, Sauteed Kale, Roasted Kabocha Squash

Dessert Chocolate Malt Devils Food Layers With Pear and Almond Brittle

An American wine will be paired with each course

What is it with her and those belts? That bluish one ruined the look of the purple gown and the one on the blue suit draws one’s eyes right to her back side because of the contrast. I’m not getting her ‘fashion statement’.

The dress is beautiful but it looks like she grabbed some garland from the Christmas box (located next to the Mao ornaments) and threw it around her waist. She’s probably wearing mustard heels underneath, as well. When it comes to fashion sense, her inspiration must be road kill.

The dress isn’t bad. Much better than the bedspreads she usually wears. And she’s not wearing 15 bracelets and necklaces like a wife of an African tribesman. Nice wig too. It’s not her fault that her arms are twice as long as those of the man standing next to her but her fingernails are too long. (She digs in a garden with fingernails like that?)

Bet Obama didn’t eat the ham - it’s pork .. against his religion.

Tighten your belts people .. Obama’s lifestyle needs to be kept up!

Two Squash dishes on one menu? How tacky! I guess Moochelle-Antoinette’s le petit hameau garden had an overload.
Let ‘em eat cake!

Thanks for the great pics.
The First Lady of South Korea is lovely.
Moochelle-Antoinette and her huge caboose, not so much. Even the obvious plastic surgery she has had cannot stop her from being a big bag ‘o ugly, or wipe that smirk off her face.

About 450 days until the Katrina entitlement looters are thrown out of the White House.
