Barack Obama Luncheon Menu

Barack Obama has officially been inaugurated as the 44th President of the United States. And what better way to celebrate than with a beautifully prepared and culturally rich meal with la crème of this country’s political figures. The luncheon menu reflects the cuisine of the home states of both the President and Vice President as well as the theme of the Inauguration. A tradition that dates back as far as 1897, the inaugural luncheon is featuring a three course menu including a seafood stew and a brace of American birds (pheasant and duck) served with a sour cherry chutney and accompanied by whipped sweet potatoes with molasses. For dessert, an apple cinnamon sponge cake with sweet cream glace is being served. A selection of wines is being paired with each course. The first course is being served on replicas of the china from the Lincoln Presidency, displaying the American bald eagle standing above the U.S. Coat of Arms.
