With those weirdos out of the picture (hopefully), tonight’s annual State Dinner is cooking up some tasty grub for some of the most powerful people in the world.
Read on for all the juicy details of the State Dinner Menu…
For the past two state dinners, the White House has hired celebrity chefs to prepare a five star meal fit for a king, er, president. For tonight’s meal, the Obama’s are keeping it close to home with their in-house Executive Chef Cristeta Comerford and Executive Pastry Chef Bill Yosses rustling up the eats.
According to Obama Foodorama, the chefs have created a “quintessentially American” menu for Chinese president Hu Jintao at the request of his delegation.
Throw out the chopsticks, as the menu features American classics like poached Maine lobster, dry-aged rib eye steak with onions, stuffed potatoes, apple pie with vanilla ice cream, and an all-American wine selection. What, no fortune cookie?
Take a look at the full state dinner menu:
D’Anjou Pear with Farmstead Goat Cheese Fennel, Black Walnuts, and White Balsamic
Wine: DuMol Chardonnay “Russian River” 2008 (California)
Double Stuffed Potatoes and Creamed Spinach

Wine: Poet’s Leap Riesling “Botrytis” 2008 (Washington State)
