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

Virginia Cured Ham,

Well, he's the muslim . . . Mooch-elle probably isn't . . . so she can eat the whole ham and not be impure.

Texas Wagyu is running about $80 a pound. While the first wookie stuffs her face with Wagyu, 440,000 people applied for UE benefits last week and there are children going to bed hungry. I guess that's okay as long as they're not eating french fries (her favorite food). These scumbags infuriate me.

Is a White House/National Palace really representative of a Republic of, for and by the people?

No, bulldoze it!

Something more fitting is in order!

Semper watching!

There's a problem. He's not a Wall Street fatcat.

He's the White House fatcat.

You conservatives should print the amount of money spent by the King on Wagu, chefs, flying, vacations, etc on the back of flyers and attach it to emails.

It might make the average uninterested person mad enough to vote.

There used to be a FReeper called ‘butternut_squash_bisque’, but he got banned before I got the recipe off his homepage. :(

With all due respect, the proper pairing of wines to food can make a huge difference in the success, or lack thereof, to a meal.

Obama collected more campaign contributions from Wall St. firms than any other candidate in history. I think he’s qualified to be both a Wall Street AND a White House Fatcat.

I think I remember $100-120/lb back in 2009 when Zero started “working” (LOL!), but that was Japanese Wagu, and this is Texas Wagu.

I wonder how much it costs us to have hired one of her handmaidens whose job it is to tie the bib around her neck and wipe the grease off of her mouf so she doesn’t get slop on her Mardi Gras dress.

And THIS fat piggie with the big fat butt will say

Weeeeeee weeeeee weeeeee!!!!!!! All the way back to Chi Town.

The 1867 Reconstruction legislature of the State of Lousiana voted themselves about $250,000 in Christmas hams. Nothing has changed.

I like the dress too, but not on her!! Her arms look like she’s ready to win the heavy weight boxing championship!! The dress makes them look out of proportion for the rest of her body.

(Wanna bet she weighs more than BO. I think I know who wins the fights in that family!)
